ISSS recognizes that international students in F-1 visa status and their academic advisors are planning their Spring 2022 course schedules, will be registering for courses, and need to know how the immigration regulations will apply. The University of Colorado Boulder intends to resume normal operations in the Spring 2022 semester. Therefore, the traditional rules regarding full-time enrollment requirements will apply.

All new and continuing international students in F-1 status attending the University of Colorado Boulder must enroll in a full course of study as defined by the F-1 regulations in order to maintain F-1 status. In order to maintain F-1 status all students (new and continuing) must enroll in the required number of in-person credits in order to maintain F-1 status. Students should review the full-time enrollment requirements, including the limitations on distance learning, and plan their Spring 2022 schedules accordingly. 

If you will have difficulty complying with this policy, please contact ISSS to discuss your options.
