Community Guidelines

It's important to note that all information that you upload to this site is completely publicly available. Please don't upload any information you aren't comfortable having on the internet. We encourage the use of social media handles over emails when providing contact info. We have talked to multiple immigration lawyers and have come to the conclusion that international students putting their contact information on this site puts them at no additional risk from governmental agencies. Technically speaking, this site is effectively a marketplace to help international students comply with immigration regulations. Immigration services already has records of all legal (student visa holders) immigrants so adding info here isn't a risk on that front. That being said, online trolls very well could harvest any information you post so please use your best judgment when adding information.
