Please take a couple of minutes to complete a 7 question NAFSA survey on Nontraditional Programs prepared by the NAFSA Task Force on Non-Traditional Programs of the International Student & Scholar-Regulatory Practice Committee.
More information follows:
NAFSA: Association of International Educators Committee has charged a task force within its International Student and Scholar Regulatory Practice (ISS-RP) to analyze and make recommendations for government agency liaison regarding the regulatory challenges of nonimmigrant participation in nontraditional programs (hybrid, low-residency, distance/online, short-term ESL, professional training, and others). A survey has been created to gather data to help internally inform the task force. Please take this important survey here.
We are also seeking specific examples of institutions finding it impossible or difficult to implement nontraditional programs due to regulatory or visa issues. Please e-mail your examples to Steve Springer, Director of Regulatory Practice Liaison, NAFSA staff at email@example.com.
