ICE CONTINUES MARCH 2020 GUIDANCE FOR 2021-2022 ACADEMIC YEAR
The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) has extended the March 2020 guidance which allowed Active and Continuing F and M students to temporarily count online classes toward a full course of study. If a student was actively enrolled at a U.S. school on March 9, 2020, and subsequently took courses online while outside of the country, they can re-enter the United States, even if their school is engaged solely in distance learning now. New and Initial F and M students will not be able to enter the country if their course of student is 100 percent online. According to a recent ICE bulletin, the March 2020 guidance will remain in effect during the 2021-22 academic year.
