Universities, including Concordia, are navigating what the fall semester will look like for their international students following an announcement from the U.S. government that non-domestic students will not receive visas from the U.S. State Department if a school moves solely to online classes.

TMJ4 reporter Adriana Mendez spoke with Assistant Vice President of International Affairs David Birner on the subject.

Birner told Mendez that Concordia’s international students are “essential and valued members of the campus community.” As such, CUW is working hard to personally address each students’ concerns and continue to welcome international students to its campus.

“They will be taken care of and we will have the courses required for them and moving forward with international students and helping them maintain their compliance,” said Birner.
