On March 2, 2011, Ambassador of India met a group of former students of the Tri-Valley University in the Embassy of India, Washington DC.
Representatives from US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Student Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) were also present.
There was a detailed and useful discussion and exchange of information on the manner in which the problems of students at Tri-Valley University are being addressed, and some of the continuing concerns of the students.
It was reiterated in the discussions that more than 50% of such students are at various stages of processing for reinstatement.  Other students were advised to contact ICE on their website (www.ice.gov/sevis), or contact call center at telephone 703-603-3400 to initiate the consideration of their cases.
It was agreed that the students and representatives from ICE and SEVP would remain in touch with the Embassy to continue to work together for early resolution of the issue.
We will keep you updated of the developments.
With regards,
Minister (Community Affairs)
Embassy of India
Washington DC

Warning: Please make sure you have a lawyer in case, you are contacted by ICE.
