Newly enrolling international students won't be allowed to enter the U.S. for the fall term if they are not taking any in-person courses, ICE clarified Friday.
International students who were enrolled as of March 9 aren’t under the same restriction following the Trump administration's retreat earlier this month from its plan to deport those who only use online courses to study this fall.
The American Council on Education and other higher education groups had been worried about a document ICE published on July 15 that says a certain category of new international students should “remain in their home country” if they have not arrived in the U.S.
Education leaders asked DHS for clarity and want the agency to work with the State Department to “prioritize the processing of student visas” as U.S. consulates begin a phased reopening.
Harvard University acknowledged this week that it can’t welcome incoming first-year international students to campus this year due to the Trump administration's new rules.
