International Students Admission

The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) has issued updated guidance which continues the original SEVP COVID-19 Pandemic Guidance issued March 2020 at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The recent update extended the Pandemic Guidance through the 2022-2023 academic year (Summer 2022, Fall 2022, Spring 2023).

Summary of the updated Guidance:

  1. Students in the US in valid F-1 status as of March 9, 2020, and who have been continuously enrolled since their arrival, are eligible to enroll in 100% online classes. They also have the option to maintain F-1 status while completing online coursework from their home country and remain in active F-1 status.
  2. Students who entered the US after March 9, 2020, are required to enroll in a minimum of one in-person or hybrid course each Fall and Spring semester. Enrollment in 100% online classes is not allowed.
