Dear HCC International Students,
On January 27, 2017, President Trump signed an executive order restricting entry into the United States by immigrants and non-immigrants from the following seven nations in the Middle East and Africa: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Specifics regarding the impact of the order are often difficult to predict and are subject to a fast-changing series of rules.
On behalf of the Center for International Education, I want to reassure each and every international student attending Hillsborough Community College (HCC) that we value your presence in our classrooms, on our campuses and in our community. We are committed to creating a learning environment that celebrates cultural diversity and promotes international understanding.
Again, we are facing a situation that is changing daily, and various legal actions are in progress. The Center for International Education will monitor changes as they happen and keep you informed. In the meantime, we recommend the following:
Your advisors at the Center for International Education and faculty counselors in counseling services are available to support you.
