Dear International Students at UGA:
The University of Georgia is a member of the American Council on Education (ACE), and President Jere W. Morehead has added UGA’s name to a letter being sent to Congressional leaders regarding the July 6 ICE directive on international students studying in the United States. The letter asks that if the Department of Homeland Security is unwilling to withdraw the directive, that Congress act quickly to pass legislation that grants flexibility for international students and institutions during the global pandemic. A copy of this letter can be found here.
The Office of Global Engagement and the Department of International Student Life are continuing to monitor developments on this important issue. Collectively, we remain committed to supporting you and providing the assistance you need during this time of uncertainty.
