As Colleges and University announce their course work for next semester, some schools have changed their schedules to all online courses for students due to the COVID pandemic. As a result, ICE and the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) announced on July 6 that international students whose are taking online only classes will not be granted a student visa, CBP will also not allow these students into the country. For more information, please click here. Today, ICE has announced that it has rescinded this policy. The Administration will resume applying COVID-19 accommodations that permit F-1 students attending school in the United States to attend classes online in order to maintain their status. This decision comes after many lawsuits were placed against the policy, including from Harvard, MIT, UCLA, and the State of California.
