New Guidance: International Student Enrollment for Fall 2020
On July 6, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security published new guidance for the U.S. Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) related to online courses for fall 2020 that concerns students on F-1 nonimmigrant visas (please note: this applies only to F-1 students). This is concerning to us and CPP is working with the California State University Chancellor’s Office to determine the best way to support international students. CPP’s International Students and Scholars Office (ISSO) and campus leadership will provide more information as soon as possible to support affected students.
We will update this announcement as new information becomes available. Please know CPP remains committed to supporting international students and scholars. We understand this guidance from Homeland Security creates stress and uncertainty in an already challenging time. If you are an international student affected by this, have questions about these restrictions, or are concerned about your immigration status, please contact your ISSO Advisor through the staff directory on the ISSO website.
We encourage you to take some time and read through the various sections of the International Center website to improve your understanding of your F-1 Visa status. Current international students can find important information, resources and forms here that will help you understand the benefits and responsibilities of your visa. We hope these resources will contribute to a positive overall international student experience.
The International Center Advisors are available to assist international students. Students are assigned to an advisor based on the first letter of their family name. Each advisors has weekly walk-in hours (10 minutes). Please come with your questions. If you need more time to talk with an advisor, contact the front desk to schedule an appointment.
