Temporary Exemptions for F-1 Students Taking Online Classes due to COVID-19

Dear MDC International Students,

Miami Dade College is aware of the modifications made this week by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Student Exchange and Visitor Program that grants temporary exemptions for non-immigrant students taking online classes due to COVID-19.

We are currently in the process of reviewing the new guidance and will provide information as soon as possible on how these updates may affect MDC’s international students with an F-1 status. Make sure you monitor your student email as more information will be provided throughout the week.

Please know that everyone at our College is committed to supporting your studies and educational dreams as an international student during this unprecedented time.


Dr. Rolando Montoya
Interim President
Miami Dade College
