We in the IEP at TCU strongly oppose the guidance released on July 6, 2020, by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), announcing that nonimmigrant F-1 and M-1 international students enrolled at institutions offering only online courses for Fall 2020 will be required to either transfer to schools holding in-person classes or else exit the United States. We do this with our partner institutions and organizations, EnglishUSA, TESOL International Association, and UCIEP.
