In-Person Course Enrollment Policy

For the 2022-23 academic year, all international students physically in the U.S. must be enrolled in at least one in-person course each term if you are in the U.S. All remaining courses can be any combination of in-person, online or hybrid. Dissertation, research and thesis credits are considered in-person credits.

If you are outside the U.S. taking classes, you are still allowed to enroll in all online courses (synchronous or asynchronous.)


I-20 Travel Signatures

Travel signatures on page 2 of the I-20 are valid for one year. If you are returning to the U.S. and the travel signature on your I-20 is blank or more than one year old, log into iConnect and submit the “I-20 Replacement Request.” eform. We will reprint your I-20, sign for travel, and email an I-20 to you as a PDF file. You must print, sign and date the I-20 copy on your end and keep with your passport for re-entry to the U.S.
