Attention married students! The deadline for accepting applications for the CVIP Lillian Kumata Scholarship is July 29, with interviews the following week. If selected this scholarship can pay up to $2500 tuition at MSU.

Applicants must be currently registered at MSU and must be married to a currently enrolled MSU international student. For more information and to apply, go to http://cvip.isp.msu.edu/scholarship/.

Can F2s study?

Under current regulations, there are limits on study by F-2 spouses and children. Spouses and children in F-2 status may enroll in less than a full course of study (i.e., part-time only) at an SEVP-certified school in any course of study. The rules allowing avocational and recreational enrollment and K-12 study remain unchanged.
Under the NEW rule:

  • F-2 spouses and children will be allowed to enroll in less than a "full course of study" at an SEVP-certified school without violating their status, even if that part-time study eventually leads to a degree or certificate.

  • The penalties for pursuing a full course of study outside the scope of the expanded rule will still constitute a violation of status.

  • F-2 dependents will still be prohibited from engaging in employment, as they are under the current rule.
