Like universities all over our nation, we were surprised by Monday's announcement by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) prohibiting international students from remaining on campus if classes are held online.

Because IUP is planning for a face-to-face hybrid course delivery for the fall, we assume your student status here is secure.

Above all, know that you are welcome here. We value you as a member of the IUP family, and we will continue to do everything in our power to create and maintain a safe and secure learning and living environment so that you can achieve your educational goals.

The IUP Office of International Education is your best point of contact for concerns. They will be holding two Town Halls for members of the IUP community, both on Monday, July 13: one at 8:00 a.m. EDT and a second at 5:00 p.m. EDT.

You can register for the 8:00 a.m. meeting through this link, and register for the 5:00 p.m. meeting through this link.

We will continue to monitor this situation closely and will be in contact with you as new information is known.
