Study-in-the-States Portal Helps International Students

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has continued to enhance the Study-in-the-States web portal. The Study-in-the-States WebSite was initiated in 2011 to assist international students and school officials. The most recent improvements include a mobile-ready version of the website.

Study-in-the-States Initiative

The Study-in-the-States Initiative was launched in late 2011 in an effort to utilize technology to help new and potential international students. Since its inception, the DHS has taken steps to improve the site and add features, as discussed in the MurthyDotCom NewsBrief, DHS Study-in-the-States Portal Helpful to Students (23.Jan.2014).

Enhancements: Interactive, Ask Question, Mobile Ready

The most recent enhancements, added at the end of June 2014, include an interactive glossary, an ask a question section, an improved school search page, and a mobile-ready version. The website, which can be translated into over fifty languages, has also been streamlined for ease of navigation. All of this is an effort to help international students to navigate the complexities of the U.S. foreign student process.


It is important for international students to have access to reliable information from reputable sources. The Study-in-the-States WebSite is helpful for such students and is continually being updated. Of course, MurthyDotCom also includes a wide array of information aimed at educating foreign national students on relevant immigration issues. And, when general information is no longer sufficient, the experienced and knowledgeable attorneys at the Murthy Law Firm provide confidential, individual guidance and representation to international students with a variety of immigration concerns.
