International Students may attend classes remotely via Zoom. Remote attendance within the United States will maintain F-1 status and CPT will remain available. Remote attendance outside of the United States via Zoom will be allowed, however Internet/VPN access is the responsibility of the student. Delays or lack of participation may negatively impact course completion and F-1 Status.
Once face-to-face classes resume, International students will be required to attend classes in-person. Exceptions for students outside of the United States and subject to international travel ban cannot be made.
International students requesting a Leave of Absence or Early Withdrawal will have their current courses dropped and are subject to standard refund policies. SEVIS records will be terminated for the reason of Authorized Early Withdrawal and students must return to their home country. International Students who request a Leave of Absence or Early Withdrawal are eligible to have their F-1 Status reinstated within five (5) months if students re-enroll in a full course of study.
Please communicate any travel decisions with the DSO.
