Decision Reversed Affecting F-1 Students Taking Online Classes due to COVID-19

Dear MDC International Students,

We are very pleased to announce that U.S. officials have reversed the decision requiring international students attending schools that moved to online-only classes due to COVID-19 to leave the country if they were unable to transfer to a college with at least some in-person instruction.

You, our international students, enrich the experience for everyone at the College. We value your important contributions and dedication and welcome the unique perspective every single one of you brings to Miami Dade College.

Thank you, for choosing MDC to complete your studies in the U.S. I, as well as the entire MDC family, remain committed to supporting your educational dreams.


Dr. Rolando Montoya
Interim President
Miami Dade College
