INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: MEETING IN-PERSON REQUIREMENTS
Update 05/13/2021: All international students who are newly enrolled as of Fall 2021 and hope to gain entry to the US for that term should be registered for at least one course during the semester that is not online. Acceptable courses are those whose instructional mode is listed in Albert as "In-Person," "Blended," or "Independent Studies." Essentially, whatever term the student starts in the US cannot be fully online. Please contact the Office of Global Services(OGS) for international students for further guidance. If you are an international student entering the US for the first time in Fall 2021 and need a blended or in-person CS course, please reach out to email@example.com to check for potential options. This website will be updated with guidance regarding Fall 2021 registration once it is available.
