Online Courses

An online, or distance learning, course for the purpose of international student regulations means a course that is primarily offered through technology and does not require the student's physical attendance for classes, examinations or other purposes integral to completion of the class.

Only one online or distance learning class can count toward a full course of study for an F-1 student during each term or semester.

If you are unsure which courses count toward the requirements for a full course of study, talk to your DSO to verify your schedule meets the requirements to maintain your status.
