Current SEVP COVID-19 Guidance

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) has provided temporary procedural guidance.  (SEVP provides approval and oversight to schools authorized to enroll F and J nonimmigrant students and gives guidance to both schools and students about the requirements for maintaining their status.)

The COVID-19 guidance enables students to engage in distance learning in excess of regulatory limits due to the current pandemic.

The guidance applies to F-1 & J-1 students who are enrolled, and are otherwise complying with the terms of their nonimmigrant status, whether from inside the United States or abroad.

For information about the current SEVP COVID-19 Guidance or questions about how your studies at SUNY New Paltz may be impacted, please email or you can schedule a virtual appointment with an advisor.
