Department of Homeland Security announced earlier this month how F-1 student visa holders would meet new restrictions if their intended schools/universities were to hold ONLINE ONLY classes this upcoming semester.
This threw many clients into a panic since the new semester is to begin next month! MIT and Harvard joined in a lawsuit to contest the new policy. Many companies and states also filed lawsuits.
Yesterday, it was announced that the Trump administration is rescinding the policy. Therefore, F-1 student visa holders may remain in the United States even if their school/university is holding classes only ONLINE this semester.
