Town Hall meeting with SEVP Director Louis M. Farrell and Chief of SEVP Policy Sharon Snyder.
The meeting will include a discussion on whether SEVP should issue a reduced course load for international students in light of the ongoing budget crisis facing California. Two Town Hall meetings will be held at March 17 (City College of San Francisco) Room 318 and March 18 (Long Beach City College) Room T1200. RSVP: info@destinationCA.org The International Student Town Hall was headed by Lou Farrell and Sharon Snyder from SEVP in Washington. Farrell warned that his ruling this year that students could take less than 12 units if no classes were available was a one time thing, it does not mean for the future. He said he was overruled, and students must be enrolled in 12 units. Lots of discussion took place on nursing programs where students are enrolled in less than this and consequences from the inability to provide classes across the curriculum. Farrell warned not to try to expand the use of technology to get around the one class limit with on-line classes. Teachers need to be present. Support from Washington: Farrell emphasized more than once that the mood in Washington is on providing increased care in allowing students to come. His office has spent much time explaining why so many language schools and private colleges have been allowed to operate fraudulently. On a discussion about paying commissions, both Snyer and Farrell said they did not know of any Department of Education ruling against the paying of commissions on a per head basis. Farrell and Snyder said that they would provide answers to questions raised by the meeting in a report later. Lou Farrell and Sharon Snyder gave the opportunity to all who were present to express their concerns and needs.
