U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced this week that next school year the agency would continue to follow guidance that allows international students to take more online classes than normal.
Background: ICE put the guidance in place last March as universities and colleges moved classes online because of the COVID-19 pandemic. ICE briefly adopted a policy in July that would have barred F or M visa holders who were already in the U.S. from remaining in the country if they attended universities that only offered online courses. The agency rescinded the policy, however, after number of universities sued to block it from taking effect. ICE has now confirmed the March 2020 policy will be extended through the next school year.
