International students and online coursework

International students attending a SCAD location within the U.S. must follow the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services rules pertaining to online courses. The rules, which are outlined on page 2 of the I-20 visa, include the following regarding registration in online coursework: Registration in an online course is allowed, but 50 percent or more of courses taken in a quarter must be in a classroom (not online). Typically, this means international students could take only one online course out of a total of three courses. For more information on this or other academic matters related to international status, students should contact the SCAD office of international student services.
