To the College of Science International Student Community,
Recent ICE announcements outlining new visa restrictions have understandably caused enormous anxiety. The College of Science is committed to supporting you and helping you successfully navigate the new regulations.
International students should enroll in at least three credits of on-campus delivery courses (in addition to other classes to meet full-time enrollment requirements) in order to maintain your student visa status. Research and thesis courses will be configured to meet the on-campus delivery requirement.
Because the College of Science Fall 2020 schedule includes a large percentage of hybrid and in-person courses which meet the stipulation of on-campus delivery, there are many options to fulfill the three-credit requirement.
We are committed to working directly with you to adjust your class schedules to avoid taking all on-line classes whenever possible. For those of you who require adjustments, your major departments will be reaching out to you individually.
If you would like to discuss your concerns, please feel free to contact your academic advisors or, in the case of graduate students, your department’s graduate program coordinator.
We value the strength and diversity of our international student community, and we will continue to do whatever possible to support you during your academic career in the College of Science.
Dean, College of Science
