We are very pleased to confirm that the federal government has rescinded the recent directive requiring on campus courses for international students. These restrictions have been lifted, and we do not need to issue updated I-20s with this additional certification language.  Also, you do not need to enroll in EDUC 499 as an on campus placeholder course. 

We encourage you to review the full message regarding this update that our University of Illinois President sent to all students and staff. In addition, our International Student and Scholar Services office has provided additional information on their website. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at

In the coming weeks, we are planning multiple roundtables, workshops, and activities to begin the semester and support your Illinois experience.  Stay tuned to this site and your email for updates!

Preparing Students to Teach and Lead in a Diverse, Globally Connected World

It has never been more important for educators and other professionals engaged in the field of education to be globally conscious and equipped to instill global competency in their own students. Through engagement with international students, institutional partnerships, on-campus international programming, study abroad opportunities for both graduate and undergraduate students, and research with visiting scholars, we prepare globally conscious citizens, teachers, administrators, researchers, and policymakers who are ready to confront the global challenges and embrace the worldwide possibilities of our time.
