May 2013: The Adviser's Manual

The NAFSA’s Adviser’s Manual is an easy-to-navigate, searchable, and frequently-updated online resource that provides information regarding immigration processes and government regulations for advisers who work with international students and scholars. The Adviser’s Manual was converted to a web publication in 2007. In 2010, the Manual was upgraded to version 2.0, which included faster download times, better search functionality, and new user customizations like notes, section printing, and bookmarking. We’re now planning for future upgrades to the Manual, and we would like your input in two main areas:


1) Functionality
- Do you have suggestions for new features or improvements of current features that would help you navigate the Manual or make the Manual work better for you in your job?

2) Content
- How can current content be improved?
- Are there new content areas you would like to see included?
- Do you have any stylistic suggestions?

Providing Feedback

I think I found an incorrect citation reference in the Manual and couldn't find any place to provide feedback.

 

It would be helpful to have a quick, easy way to provide feedback when a possible typo is found.

 

btw, the reference is under 4.12.2.1 I think it should point to 8 CFR 214.2(j)(1)(viii) instead of (j)(1)(iii) regarding a change of address for J-1s

Forum Tied to the Manual

I'd like to see a NAFSA forum where we can discuss issues that is linked to the manual perhaps with tags or something. So if I'm looking at the J-1 English proficiency requirement in the Manual, I can click on a link to the forum where people are discussing this exact issue.

Offer printed version of the advisor's manual

It would be helpful to have a printed version, as an option, in addition to the online version. I am appreciative of the online version, the speed of updates, and availability of features, however it is extremely helpful to be able to have a printed manual and review with students and scholars and/or to have available when computers or the internet are not options.
