Pandemic creates added pressures for international students

The UA has about 3,700 international students.

Enrolling in online-only courses briefly had added consequences for international students in the United States when Immigration and Customs Enforcement mandated that foreign students would not be allowed to enter or stay in the U.S. unless they attended in-person classes. ICE quickly rescinded the policy after the University of Arizona and several other institutions mounted their own legal challenges. But as Tony Paniagua reports, some students studying abroad at the UA remain uneasy as they enter an academic year full of uncertainties.
