Harvard announced earlier this week that all course instructions would be sent online, including for students who live on campus. In a statement given to CNN, the university said the guidelines would affect around 5,000 international students.
“The order was handed down without notice – his cruelty was only surpassed by his carelessness. It seems that it was deliberately designed to put pressure on colleges and universities to open classrooms on their campus for direct instruction this fall, without regard to concerns for the health and safety of students, instructors, and others, “said Harvard University President Larry Bacow.
Visa requirements for students are always strict and coming to the US to take online courses is prohibited. Immigration and Customs Enforcement states that the ban in the guidelines, while giving some flexibility to the hybrid model, means a mixture of online and private classes.
The agency recommends that students currently registered in the US consider other steps, such as transferring to school with direct instruction.
In a FAQ published by the agency, The Department of Homeland Security reasoned that “all students scheduled to study at US institutions in the fall will be able to do so, although some will be asked to study abroad if their attendance is not required for face-to-face classes in the US. United States.”
Lawsuit, filed in the US District Court for the District of Massachusetts, attempting to block directives, arguing that it violates the Administrative Procedure Act. The universities argued that ICE’s decision not to make exceptions to online courses put them in an “untenable situation” either continuing their plans to operate fully or mostly online or efforts to provide direct learning.
The lawsuit also underscores the challenges posed to students: “Only a few weeks from the beginning of the fall semester, these students are largely unable to transfer to universities that provide instructions on campus, despite ICE’s suggestion that they might do so to avoid transfer from the country. . ”
