Join GMAC for an overview on what to expect next from the U.S. Administration

Please join us for a conversation on recent immigration policy changes and the rapidly changing political landscape. Expert legal counsel will discuss the current legal status of travel and immigration policy rules, Presidential Executive Orders and Department of Homeland Security memos, what can be expected in the coming weeks and months (such as potential changes to H1-B visas and Optional Practical Training (OPT)), and how these changes may impact the education community both in the U.S. and worldwide.

This complimentary one-hour webinar on Wednesday, March 8 at 2 p.m. EST, is for GMAC Member Schools and for schools that accept the Graduate Management Admission Test®. For more information about U.S. Immigration and Policy Changes, visit gmac.com/aboutus.
