Federal Updates for F-1 International Students Enrolled in Remote Coursework

On May 11, 2023, the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) terminated COVID-19 flexibilities allowing F-1 international students to enroll in fully/mostly remote learning. This means our F-1 international students may only take 1 online course to count toward their full-time load.  This will be implemented in 2 schedules:

  • Currently enrolled F-1 Students: can continue to enroll in an unrestricted number of online courses through end of Summer 2023.
  • ALL F-1 Students: beginning Fall 2023 online instruction is limited to no more than one class (or three units) per term per regulatory requirements.
