International Student COVID-19 Visa Information

Update October 1, 2020

With the emergence of COVID-19, national policies regarding international student visas, specifically F-1 and M-1 visas, are constantly and quickly evolving. In July 2020, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced that new international students would not at this time be permitted to come to the United States while taking entirely online classes. Though American National University is largely conducted online, ANU has always functioned and continues to function under SEVP guidelines for hybrid programs through residency. Residencies will continue with live instruction via Zoom in place of in-person meetings due to ongoing health risks of the COVID-19 pandemic until December 31, 2020. This solution ensures minimal negative impact for students, their classes, and their ability to receive a quality education.

To reiterate: ANU’s hybrid program delivery with residencies conducted temporarily via live ZOOM videoconferencing in response to COVID-19 is fully compliant with SEVP requirements for international students to maintain their F1 visa status.

This page will be updated whenever there is additional news to report regarding the visa statuses of international students.
