International Students FAQ

Student and Exchange Visitor Program

Hybrid/split classes are considered face-to-face and count toward your requirement for full-time enrollment.
If the university were to make a shift to online courses for health and safety reasons during the middle of the semester, you would not be subject to deportation.
If you have an F-1 visa, your visa would not be cancelled if you are studying from your home country even if your SEVIS record is terminated. A SEVIS termination would not affect your F-1 visa. You would, however, need a new initial I-20 before returning to the United States to continue your in-person education.

At this time, we do not have guidance on whether or not your SEVIS record will be terminated if you remain in your home country for the spring semester. We will update you as soon as we have further guidance. 
You are required to maintain your full-time enrollment status. You maintain full-time status by enrolling in at least 12 credits as an undergraduate student or at least 6 credits as a graduate student. Hybrid/split courses count toward your full-time enrollment requirements.

As long as your dissertation hours are being completed on-campus, yes, dissertation hours meet the requirements for full time, in-person learning.
