| Education Jagat - 01 Aug 2020

The US immigration authority has issued a new policy stating that freshly enrolled foreign students who are seeking only-online study this fall will be barred from entering the country, days after the Trump administration dropped its controversial plan to expel international students if their universities switch to online-only classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
 The new policy was announced by the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which said that its guidance granting visa flexibility to nonimmigrant students only applies to those who were actively enrolled at American schools on March 9.
 Students and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement of the Department of Homeland Security, in a revised guideline for Fall 2020, asked universities not to issue the necessary visa paperwork for those international students who are fully enrolled in online courses.
 The designated Dean of Students Office or DSOs should not issue a Form I-20, “Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status, for a student in new or Initial status who is outside of the United States and plans to take classes at a SEVPcertified educational institution fully online, said the revised guidelines, which was initially issued on March 9.
