International Student Intake Form
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) - Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued a directive stating that international students enrolled in universities that moved to full-time online learning in the fall must depart the U.S. The full text of the directive is below.
The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) will attempt to assist students impacted by this rule change. Please complete the form below, and should any legal options be available you will be notified.
Students attending schools operating entirely online may not take a full online course load and remain in the United States. The U.S. Department of State will not issue visas to students enrolled in schools and/or programs that are fully online for the fall semester nor will U.S. Customs and Border Protection permit these students to enter the United States. Active students currently in the United States enrolled in such programs must depart the country or take other measures, such as transferring to a school with in-person instruction to remain in lawful status or potentially face immigration consequences including, but not limited to, the initiation of removal proceedings.
Please note that submission of this form does not mean you are retained or represented by attorneys at ADC.
