International Students

International students should review the full Opening the Gates plan for information on safe on-campus living and housing, finances and financial aid, student employment and more. The following section is for specific questions that affect international students, such as travel and visa information. 

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has further indicated that the guidance for the spring 2021 will remain the same as it was for spring and fall 2020 semesters. F-1 students will be able to study remotely from within the U.S. or from home and have their SEVIS records kept active as long as they are enrolled as full time students. New students (those entering the U.S. on initial attendance I-20 forms) will be able to come to campus as we will be offering in person options for some classes. These students will be able to take classes remotely from home if they are not able to come to the U.S. New international students should be in touch with the McCulloch Center with specific questions and for additional information. 

Please continue to rely on emails from the College for the most up-to-date and pertinent information that directly relates to Mount Holyoke.
