International Student Enrollment Eligibility

International undergraduate students (students) who attend the University of La Verne must maintain specific enrollment standards to avoid endangering their I-20 visas.  Students must keep to the following minimum standards:

  • Maintain full-time enrollment (12-18 semester hours) to keep their I-20 in Active status.
  • Only one (1) online course is allowed per academic term (fall or spring), and only if the other courses are in-person (“on ground”) classes.

Part-Time Option:

Students who do not need to carry a full-time course load in their final semester (because they are graduating) may do so by completing a “reduced course load” form and “extension” signed by their academic advisor. The form can be picked up from the Office of International Services & Engagement.

If the student deems it necessary to enroll in a course from another college or university, and this course is online (not on-ground/in-person) must ALSO carry a course on-ground/in-person at the University of La Verne to keep their I-20 in Active status. This arrangement is called “concurrent enrollment”. Consult with the Office of International Services & Engagement.

Summer Registration:

Students who desire to register in summer session at ULV or transfer from another college or university may enroll in any course modality.

Transfer to Another College or University:

Students who desire to transfer to another college or university must also transfer their I-20 to the new college or university.
