NORTH CAROLINA – International students attending college in the U.S. may have to leave if their school moves to online-only classes for the fall.
The U.S. Department of State said they will not approve a student's visa if their college is fully online next semester.
Harvard has already announced it will only offer remote learning in the fall, and other universities may soon follow suit.
ICE said students who fall under certain visas might not be able to study in the U.S. if this happens.
Visa requirements are strict, and coming to the U.S. to take online-only courses has never been allowed.
Some students may face a considerable issue because their home country has restrictions on travel from the U.S. due to the coronavirus.
In some cases, students may not be able to study here in the U.S. or return home.
