Harvard Announces 100% Virtual Classes For Students Both On and Off Campus – ICE Announces Exchange Students No Longer Qualify For Visas…

Earlier today Harvard University announced all classes this year and next will be taught virtually.  Incoming Freshman will have dorms, but no classes will have in-person instruction; all classes will be virtual.  The total student body on campus will be kept under a forty percent threshold due to COVID-19 efforts.

MASSACHUSETTS – “In addition to freshmen, Harvard will host as many students who “must be on campus to progress academically” this fall as it can without exceeding the 40 percent threshold. All courses will be taught virtually for students both on and off campus.”

Additionally, Harvard will not be making any adjustments to their tuition rates.

A few hours later U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced any foreign student who attends a U.S. university with only virtual classes will lose their student visa.

ICE Announcement – […] Nonimmigrant F-1 and M-1 students attending schools operating entirely online may not take a full online course load and remain in the United States.

The U.S. Department of State will not issue visas to students enrolled in schools and/or programs that are fully online for the fall semester nor will U.S. Customs and Border Protection permit these students to enter the United States.

Active students currently in the United States enrolled in such programs must depart the country or take other measures, such as transferring to a school with in-person instruction to remain in lawful status. If not, they may face immigration consequences including, but not limited to, the initiation of removal proceedings. (more)

      There are dorms because a lot of schools *require* freshmen to live on campus. Harvard here for example is still doing so, despite all classes being virtual. It’s insane.

      Hard to avoid the implication that it’s an indoctrination thing.

        No it’s a money thing. They need the money from students to “Board” at school. Since freshmen classes are the largest, probably 30-40 % of total student body. When I went to a top school, they said in freshman orientation to look right and left — those students won’t be there when you graduate!!!

        There was a college expansion boom in the 1980’s as tuition went up and money could be captured by offering dormitories, fancy gyms and luxurious student centers to lure students. Making students live on-campus helps the school recoup its costs but also to jack up the tuition and facilities fees since the kids are being provided the “full college experience” (read: a hive of scum and villainy).

        The Ivy League schools don’t particularly rely on the dormitories for money and they built them up earlier. There it’s just part of their assembly line, to more efficiently concentrate that hive of scum and villainy.

        Except they are not requiring ALL freshman to live online bc of social distancing, Thus the “40% threshold” (same thing at UofCA schools this fall). It’s just Harvard undermining the return to normal in the US. There is no coincidence that Harvard came out with a study condemning home schooling right after kids are locked down for China virus, they don’t want parents to get any funny ideas. (

        The reality is unless you have labs, art, et al, you really don’t need a physical presence and thus the realization that the University of Phoenix model is not to be dismissed.

        Harvard hates Trump’s America.

        I worked at a University for a number of years, in the physical side of the business. The cash cows for every University is Housing. Housing generates over 50% of their profits. Food is another cash cow for them. Most students get meal plans of which only 60% of the plan is used. This is a well known aspect and something the Universities count on. Many also rent out space during summer slow down, for camps or seminars or other activities which adds in a huge amount of extra money. It is why the shut down hurt them, as many didn’t release tuition, but had to give back on Housing costs.

          The Yard is the area behind the Ivy covered walls and with numerous gates. It’s where Memorial Church is and Widener and several other libraries and various other administrative buildings. The balance is made up of dorms, some of them in buildings on the National Historical list.

      I have been saying this also that more parents will opt to home school – was thinking of helping parents out with this if they have to work! These covid-19 rules that Democratic Governors like NJ Phil Murphy dictated actually lead to a great opportunity to cut back on the extreme NJ taxes by reducing the amount of teachers needed. Virtual school teachers can teach way more than the small class sizes they teach normally. The schooling budget makes up the majority of NJ’s excessive property taxes. The Governor could actually do something to reduce the states taxes and has now shown how easy it was during the Covid-19 state shutdown! Really hope more parents opt to home school to break this excessive gravy train here in NJ.

    Leaving aside the deeper implications at the moment, on the surface this seems a little harsh. Requiring students to leave, for (presumably) one year, only to have to upset their lives again very shortly and once again apply for a visa in order to finish their education? All things considered, one year isn’t very long: to change countries, find a new residence, a new job or other means of supporting oneself, and then repeat the whole process again in a year or less?

    Unless there’s a deeper motive behind it (such as cutting off the funneling of IP to China,) it seems very petty. And if students are still taking the classes online anyway, it’s not cutting off much of anything.

    I suppose it would prevent them from voting, but with the other methods of voter fraud I’m not sure how much impact that would be anyway. Obviously, they shouldn’t qualify for welfare: they should have to get a job. But shipping them out for a year, only for them to come back again next year, just seems counterproductive to me.

      Online has real implications.

      For instance, many schools like to charge out-of-state students more for tuition. The schools like to look at it as they are giving in-state students a “break” in tuition. If the school/state decides to make it so that students are taking online classes there isn’t even that arbitrary distinction anymore.

      Getting a visa to the US is for a specific purpose. A travel visa for travel to the US during a certain period then you leave, supposedly at least. A student visa is issued because you must come to the US to take classes to complete your course of study. If you can complete your studies online there is no requirement to be here. They know people want to get to the US for many reasons and they don’t want faking going to school to be one of them. Schools notify the government of enrolled status etc. They don’t want you to apply for a school visa and then work etc.

      There was a Canadian student in a few of my classes. I spoke to him in the second course I saw him in. He was taking 25 credits (roughly 3 credits a class) that semester and had taken 21 credits before. He was a scholarship volleyball athlete and being an athlete takes a lot of time and impacts coursework. Anyway, he needed to finish within the time that he was given for his student visa. At least back then, `1989-1990ish they were very strict with Visas and the need for issuing them.

      A side effect of this homeschool/online for k-12 and colleges is people are asking wtf am I actually paying for? School have introduced competition into their own monopoly. It’s going to be hard to argue “quality” of instruction. They may be sorry they did this. As it is, many students, US and foreign, may opt to skip the fall semester in hopes that by the spring things have gone back to normal and their tuition actually pays for some of the “experience” that the college say they give.

    Harvard has a huge endowment, can weather a lot. The Chinese didn’t build educational infrastructure, and in their minds, why should they have, with the USA, Australia, UK, and many other countries who take educate their students, having built over time huge educational infrastructure? Tuition is only a part of the cost of higher education. We the taxpayers have subsidized an awful lot of foreign students (grants to professors with overhead paid by grantors, building/maintenance costs, state of the art equipment, on and on). Especially scientific and medical education, buildings, equipment, labs.

    No. First It now sets the standard that only in person face to face instructions require a foreign students presence.
    Second, It hits many Universities and Colleges directly in the Wallet. Many Foreign Full Tuition Paying Students will not apply this year.
    Third, if this virus is sooo dangerous, the reduction in foreigners visiting will likely reduce any transmission of other strains to the US.

    If their education is so important, They will pursue it no matter the obstacles in their way. It took me eight years to finish my Bachelors Degree, but I finished it.

    Defund the universities until they represent traditional American values, freedom, free trade, free speech, freedom of religion, and the right to defend oneself. Home school and fight for school choice until the public schools do the same.

    No matter what they do tuition will not be reduced says it all.
    Where exactly is the DOJ and the Fan Belt Inspectors and the Department of education on Harvard and Yale and other universities taking billions from China off the books ?

    I said at the get go that all schools who do not put kids in the seats should lose gubt funding. Let’s hope this is just the beginning of the gubts crackdown on DIMs playing loose and fast with our children’s education.

    So going virtual is because of the virus… but you don’t get the virus if you are in a dorm room doing lectures on line.

    Right…. like freshmen/women wont be partying and eating meals with each other. The Harvard Health Service is going to do a land office business with testing.

    Freshmen at most schools have a lot of enormous survey courses. The lectures have hundreds of kids. At Harvard the smaller sections with a TA are often at the houses for ease.

    It’s a TRAP! Hahahahaha.
    Everyone should now get to enroll at Harvard for free and completely eliminate the value of the degree.

    If one had a Harvard degree, they still wouldn’t be able to pass the bar exam. Money talks

      Harvard law allows their students to give themselves their own grades. At least that’s what my lawyer friends from UVA, Thomas Cooley, and UMD law schools all told me circa 2008.

      It blew my mind when each one of them confirmed it to me. How on earth is that an accredited program?!

    “Additionally, Harvard will not be making any adjustments to their tuition rates.”

    Shocked by that, just shocked! 🙄

    Further proof that “education” is the biggest racket going today.

    Imagine if you’re a kid who got a hockey scholarship to Harvard……do they now play virtual games? 🤔

      Adjustments to tuition rates might negatively affect the most sacred of sacred cows, the sacrosanct and all holy ENDOWMENT FUND, which must never ever be spent on anything other than increasing the endowment.

      Or refurbishing university poo-bah houses and offices.

    The ICE announcement had the sound of WINNING and I was ready to celebrate, but as described, it seems like a school can circumvent it by enrolling all international students in mandatory English conversation classes that meet for 20 minutes once a week and don’t check attendance very carefully.

      I may be wrong but Ido not read it that way. There is narrow exemption to allow a small portion of classes to be taken online but that exemption does not apply to ” F-1 students in English language training programs or M-1 students pursing vocational degrees”

      Nonimmigrant F-1 students attending schools adopting a hybrid model—that is, a mixture of online and in person classes—will be allowed to take more than one class or three credit hours online. These schools must certify to SEVP, through the Form I-20, “Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status,” certifying that the program is not entirely online, that the student is not taking an entirely online course load this semester, and that the student is taking the minimum number of online classes required to make normal progress in their degree program. The above exemptions do not apply to F-1 students in English language training programs or M-1 students pursing vocational degrees, who are not permitted to enroll in any online courses

  47. Universities make the most money-per-student on foreign students. So they can either not play along with the fake pandemic hysteria, and hold in-person classes, or they can forego this cash cow. Hahahaha, GF universitities!

    This won’t hurt the likes of Hahvad too much, but it will take a bite out of other Marxism factories.

      State-aligned monopolies give jobs to degrees from State-aligned universities, using State-aligned curricula. Does not seem very stable – either the fascism becomes permanent, or it self-implodes.
