September 29​, 2020: ​USCIS Filing Fee Increases On Hold. 

Update: ​​​USCIS recently announced fee increases that were to go into effect for forms commonly used by international students including the I-765 and I-539. On September 29, 2020 , the U.S. District Court​ for ​​the Northern District of California issued a nationwide preliminary injunction and stay on ​implementation ​of the 2020 final USCIS fee rule in it​s entirety. ​This means that the new fees will not be implemented at this time. New fees and form versions ​​associated with that rule that ​were to be required on October 2, 2020 ​as well as other aspects ​of the rule are now on hold. Additional information may be found on the NAFSA Association of International Educators​ website. ​Always download current forms directly from the USCIS website to ensure that the most recent form and current fees are included. Please contact your ISS Advisor​ with questions. ​​​
