What does the SEVP guidance currently in effect regarding online instruction mean for international students studying on campus at Brown?

Brown University follows a hybrid model during the spring semester that offers online and in-person instruction. As per SEVP guidelines, students whose SEVIS record was active on March 9, 2020, may continue to follow the SEVIS guidance from Spring 2020, which is currently still in effect. New F-1 students in initial status (including transfer or change of educational level students), who entered or will be entering the U.S. after March 9, 2020, are required to take at least one in-person or hybrid course and attend the in-person component throughout the entire term.
