Now that you have arrived in the United States and have been admitted to the U.S. as a nonimmigrant, it is your responsibility to maintain it.

Nonimmigrant statuses are strictly regulated by the U.S. government and failure to follow the rules governing your status could have a significant effect on your future plans. Essentially, the government expects you to engage in activities consistent with your status. It is crucial that you manage your immigration status as effectively as you manage your career. It is important to think strategically and proactively about both your immigration status and your future.
