New SEVP Rules for International Students for Fall 23-24

International students enrolled in the Summer 2023 semester are allowed to complete the summer semester under the flexible COVID-19 guidelines. However, starting on September 1, 2023, all F1 VISA students, regardless of when they entered the United States, will need to enroll in in-seat classes, with only one online (or remote) class permitted per semester. Before registering for fall classes, please be sure to meet with your academic advisor to ensure that you are enrolling in the required number of in-seat classes. Should you have any questions about this, please reach out to Vera Dimoplon at
