Foreign students will get to stay, in a rule once put in a place by the White House, that would force foreign college students to leave the country if they were to take online only classes.
U.S. District Judge Allison Burroughs announced today that the U.S. agreed to rescind the policy that required students to take at least one in-person class, even amid the pandemic, or it will take the visas away from international students whose courses move to online only.
There was a massive lawsuit brought on by Harvard and MIT along with several states and colleges following suit, to block the policy after its announcement last week caused a major uproar.
The 1.1 million foreign students enrolled in U.S colleges brought in a massive $41 Billion contribution to the economy for 2018/2019, according to the Institute of International Education.
That’s A LOT money.
