BILL NUMBER:S1565 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to reporting requirements of foreign students in the United States PURPOSE: This bill will require degree granting institutions in New York State who accept foreign students to report to the State Police whenever a foreign student has failed to maintain his or her legitimate status as a foreign student at that institution. Currently foreign students that are no longer attending school, or have failed to appear or failed to register for classes are in violation of their student visa. Current law requires that the institution report this information to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Although this becomes known to the United States Department of Homeland Security, the college is not required to make a proactive report to New York State enforcement authorities. The bill also requires a compilation of statistical data regarding the number of foreign students at each college in New York State and the programs they are enrolled in. Amendments to the bill make clear that the police may only contact the federal authorities should they encounter reported individuals. In addition, it makes clear that only statistical data should be collected, not names, addresses
