Welcome International Students 

A Message to International Students:   

The Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement rescinded the July 6 SEVP guidance, which would have prohibited international students residing in the U.S. from taking online-only courses.

To maintain F1 status, current international students must continue to maintain a full course of study (12 units) throughout the fall semester, even if they are outside of the U.S.  International students are permitted to take all classes online so there is no need to adjust class schedules for students enrolled only in online classes.

Diablo Valley College is still offering a combination of fully online and hybrid (partially online and partially on campus) courses for Fall 2020. Remote student services will continue.
