Q:  What are the enrollment requirements for the Fall 2022 semester?

A:   On May 31, 2022 the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) announced that the current COVID-19 guidance only applies to students who were actively enrolled on March 9, 2020 and maintained continuous enrollment from that time.  Therefore, most students at this time should have no more than 3 credits online to fulfill the minimum full-time enrollment of 12 credits for undergraduate students and 9 credits for graduate students.  Only students continuously enrolled since March 9, 2020 may request an exemption to the minimum full-time enrollment requirements.  Otherwise, please ensure that you follow the above full-time enrollment requirements.    

Q:  When does the Fall 2022 international student insurance policy start?   

A:   The Fall 2022 plan becomes effective on August 25, 2022.  All international students eligible for the plan will be automatically enrolled in mid-August and their student account will be billed the insurance premium.  New international students with an initial I-20 or DS-2019 are covered during the 30 day arrival period starting on July 31st.
