A message to International Students:  

The Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement have rescinded the July 6 SEVP Guidance, which would have prohibited international students residing in the U.S. from taking online-only courses.

As such, we are therefore still planning for a combination of fully online and hybrid (partially online and partially on campus) courses for Fall 2020. Remote student services will continue.  Current international students must continue to maintain a full course of study (12 units) throughout the fall semester, even if they are outside of the U.S.

Future international students admitted for Fall 2020 may either enroll in online classes from abroad during their first semester or defer enrollment to the Spring 2021 semester. International students transferring from U.S. institutions may enroll in online classes while continuing to live in the U.S.

Please contact Lindsay Arentz at at the International Student Office for additional guidance. We are committed to supporting you, and we look forward to addressing any questions you may have.
