NewsFlash! First Year F-1 Students Still Prohibited From Entering the U.S. to Take All Online Courses

The dean of Harvard University has advised its students that the legal settlement Harvard and  the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) reached with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) regarding online courses does not apply to first-year students entering in F-1 status. This means that new students will not be eligible to enter in F-1 status unless at least some courses meet in-person. However, students who are returning to the U.S. or continuing in F-1 status will be permitted to attend all online courses under the temporary accommodations implemented by ICE during the COVID-19 pandemic.
