International students must attend on-campus or leave the country?

International students must attend on-campus or leave the country?

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, Harvard and MIT have sued in federal court to block a new federal policy, prohibiting international students in the U.S. from enrolling exclusively in online courses.

The problem? Harvard and MIT aren’t offering on-campus courses this fall. So what happens to these students?

The takeaway? Today, international students don’t have many options. Will they need to transfer to a school that offers in-person instruction? Will they be forced to leave the country altogether? And is this policy purely designed to force institutions to figure out ways to re-open this fall? We’re all actively watching to see how this lawsuit pends.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
