Penn State Offers Support For Ukrainians Applying To Stay In United States

Penn State is now offering assistance to Ukrainian students, faculty, and staff who are navigating the Biden administration’s Temporary Protected Status (TPS) policy that allows them to remain in the United States.

Effective March 3, the Department of Homeland Security designates Ukraine under TPS for 18 months. Any Ukrainian national at Penn State is eligible to remain in the country throughout that span.

Penn State Global’s International Student and Scholar Advising (ISSA) office is offering support for those who may need to stay in the United States longer than anticipated. To contact an ISSA adviser, head to the iStart platform online.

It’s anticipated to take several weeks for immigration officials to start processing applications, but Student Legal Services can help students begin the process and determine if they’re eligible for protected status.

Amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the Penn State Ukrainian Society hosted numerous demonstrations in support of its country. Penn State President Eric Barron voiced his support in a statement, too.

Last week, local landmarks like the State College Municipal Building and the Bryce Jordan Center lit up in blue and gold to show their support for Ukraine, too.
