US won’t allow new students into country for online-only classes

On Friday US Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced that newly-enrolled international students won’t be allowed to enter the United States if their classes are offered online only.

Students will be allowed to enter the US to enroll in a US school to pursue hybrid coursework for the fall semester, and the rules will not apply to international students who were already enrolled at colleges or universities in the US last semester and are returning, even if their school is fully online.

A few weeks ago, the Trump administration attempted to prevent all international students from staying in the US if they were taking their courses online, but after 17 attorney generals and DC filed a lawsuit they withdrew the policy.

Now, the new rule will apply only to new students, rather than students already in the US.
