Notice to Fordham University's International Community Regarding DHS/ICE Broadcast Message: COVID-19 and Fall 2020 issued on July 6, 2020
On Tuesday, July 14, 2020, the Trump Administration rescinded its policy as announced in ICE's Broadcast of July 6, 2020 that would have stripped visas from international students whose courses move exclusively online in the fall due to COVID-19. It remains unclear how this affects F1 students who remain outside the US and new F1s planning to begin studies at Fordham this fall. OIS will update you as we receive further guidance.
