White House Rescinds Rules on Foreign Students Studying Online

The Department of Homeland Security issued regulations earlier this month limiting foreign students’ ability to take classes online and stay in the United States. Under these regulations, students attending schools operating entirely online may not take a full online course load and remain in the United States. These new rules created unnecessary obstacles that would have prevented international students from continuing or beginning their academic careers in light of changing circumstances associated with the global impact of COVID-19.

The collective voices of higher education, including the University of Evansville, were able to demonstrate the devastating impact of these regulations on our international students and colleges and universities across the country.

The University is delighted to announce that the Administration has rescinded the regulations issued last week and international students can continue to remain part of the fabric of our university just as they did in the Spring semester. This is a very positive result for UE and all of higher education.
