On July 6, ICE announced that, despite the coronavirus pandemic, international students would have to attend at least one in-person course in the fall in order to enter or stay in the U.S. That rule was rescinded on July 13. However, in the week it was in effect, some international students were already denied entry into the U.S. For example, one DePaul University student returning from South Korea was denied entry at San Francisco International Airport. Now that the mandate has been rescinded, it is not clear how this will affect students who were denied entry to the U.S.
