My boyfriend is an international student and he just received a transit adjudication bureau civil ticket for doubling up on a turnstile. He was in a rush and the train was coming so he just went with a friend and got caught. He is going to pay because this was his fault, but his only concern is will this affect his f1 student visa renewal. From what I've read, this isn't a criminal and won't go on the permanent record, but does this show at all? Thanks in advance for your comments! It's much appreciated!
These yellow summonses are civil and do not give you a criminal record.

This will not appear on a criminal record because it is not a criminal conviction. Your boyfriend should be just fine.
This is a non-criminal summons and the disposition will not be on his RAP sheet. Your boyfriend should obtain a certificate of disposition for his records.
