International students in the United States on F-1 visas are eligible for Temporary Protected Status (TPS, Form-821) if hazardous and/or potentially life-threatening conditions, such as ongoing armed conflict or a natural disaster in their country prevent them from returning to that country.

To receive TPS benefits, which include immunity from deportation, employment authorization and eligibility for travel authorization, the student from the TPS-designated country must apply for individual TPS with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

International students do not need to relinquish their F-1 status in order to get TPS. In other words, it is possible to have both at the same time. However, it is important to remember that the TPS will end on a specific date, unless the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security renews the TPS designation for that country.
