Following the article from BuzzFeed on the NorthWestern Polytechnic University (NPU), many students are probably wondering what is next? After the article, Sen. Richard Blumenthal has demanded “immediate action” after a BuzzFeed News investigation revealed that a government-approved watchdog had given its stamp of approval to an upmarket visa mill in Silicon Valley. as per Buzzfeed.

After the Senator’s intervention,  I doubt that Department of Homeland Security and the Department of State will actually NOT going to investigate NPU.  The question is what happens to all the students who are enrolled in the school? From our experience dealing with Tri Valley University saga and the University of Northern New Jersey (UNNJ), we hope that in case there is a possible “shut down” of NPU,  the government will give a chance to the students to transfer rather than just terminating the SEVIS.

At this point in time, there is no official call from the DHS or any authorities to close or do anything to the students. However, we recommend that the students to be ready and vigilant in the event they decide to investigate or close the school. The video and podcasts are a quick guidance to the students. Remember ‘anything you say can be used against you.’ Feel free to call us at 510 7425887 should have any questions.
