Academic Year 2022 – 2023 Update

For the Academic Year 2022 – 2023, classes will continue both online and in-person depending on the program and curriculum. For all in-person classes, LLU has put in place specific plans for proper screening, social distancing, cleaning of frequently used spaces and other safety precautions to ensure the safety of our students and faculty.

For brand new initial students on the F-1 and J-1 student visas, to enter the U.S. and maintain your immigration status during the Academic Year 2022 – 2023 (June 2022 – June 2023), you'll have to register for a full-time course load and at least one of the following:

  • An in-person course
  • A hybrid course that requires a physical presence on-campus or in-person learning
