How many distance or online courses may I enroll in for the fall 2020 semester if I am enrolled on campus? (Updated July 16)
The current guidance indicates that students must be enrolled in and engaged in a full course of study, if they wish to maintain their visa status. There is no limit to the number of online/distance courses and there is not residential course requirement. Students may participate in their coursework either on-campus or from a remote location inside or outside the United States and their SEVIS status will remain “active”. Students are reminded that they MUST keep their address inside the United States current with ISS, and they must notify ISS if they intend to pursue their coursework from outside the United States. ISS will send instructions for providing location updates to students during the week of July 20, 2020. Students should monitor their @purdue email account for further information and instructions.
