Kansas City: Newly enrolled international students can’t come to the U.S. if their university has announced a 100% online reopening for the fall semester, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said on Friday.
While students already studying in the U.S. at schools that have declared fully online models are allowed to stay, those abroad won’t be allowed to enter the country unless their schools plan to offer a hybrid or fully in-person model of instruction.
The directive comes less than two weeks after ICE rescinded a policy requiring all international students to take at least one online class after a widespread backlash and a lawsuit filed by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. – Bloomberg

ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
