Pursuing Higher Education In US In 2021

US universities should restart in-person classes soon, now that a vaccine against COVID-19 has been approved. Start dates are likely to be staggered across the country, depending on vaccine availability and the number of COVID cases in a given region. Universities are optimistic that classes will reopen on campus by fall 2021.

International students still must follow current (as of December 2020) guidelines, in that new students must take at least one on-campus class in order to remain in the United States, whereas continuing students may take all classes remotely until further notice. These limitations have resulted in significantly fewer international student admissions during the fall 2020 semester, which will likely result in a shortfall in new graduates in four years.

EB-5 Program Update:

The EB-5 Program has lapsed. The US Congress is discussing the legislation that authorizes the program while USCIS reviews the regulations and policies for filing. Because of the recent court ruling that reversed the 2019 Modernization regulations, the investment level has shifted temporarily from $900,000 back to $500,000.

If the program is reauthorized before the regulations are updated, there may be another window of opportunity to file at $500,000.

LCR expects the program to be reauthorized in February 2022, and continues to work with international families that want to explore alternative residency options.
