The Trump administration agreed to walk back Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) guidelines back to those set in March, according to an announcement today.

On July 6, ICE released a set of guidelines requiring international students to leave the United States if they wished to take courses completely online in the fall. MIT and Harvard — with legal support from several universities including UR — filed a lawsuit against these guidelines, and succeeded.

ICE guidelines are now set to the emergency guidelines issued in March, which are relaxed to allow students to take all courses online in the face of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
