 Immigration Updates: Registration Update

  • Classes begin on August 24 and August 28 is the deadline for registration. Any registration after August 28 will require special permission from the instructor and registrars office.
  • Fall 2020 registration is open—this semester, to make registering easier, you do NOT need to receive an access code.
  • For undergraduate students, you must enroll in at least 12 credits. For graduate students, you must enroll in at least 6 credits to maintain your full-time student status.
  • For students currently outside the U.S., you may maintain your F-1 status as long as you are registered full-time. 
  • If you are studying in the United States for the Fall 2020 semester and do not pay your International Student Health Insurance by August 20, your Fall 2020 courses will be dropped by the end of that day.
  • Reduced Course Load (RCL): If you submitted a Reduced Course Load (RCL) form this semester for the reason that it is “Last semester to complete program of study” that means that you do NOT have any courses to take beyond December 11, 2020. If that is not that case and you have courses to complete in Spring 2021, then please contact your immigration advisor immediately! You may have to register for more courses this semester so you’re complying with your F-1 status. If you need to complete an RCL Form, please make sure one gets submitted before the start of the Fall 2020 semester.
