Proclamation suspending entry of certain Chinese graduate students and visiting scholars

On May 29, the U.S. president signed a proclamation that suspends the entry of certain F-1 and J-1 graduate students and visiting scholars from China effective June 1, 2020.

At this time, while we believe the scope of impact from this proclamation will be relatively low at IUPUI, there are still many unknowns regarding how this policy will be implemented. Until we are advised otherwise by the U.S. government, we will continue to process immigration documents for all F-1 and J-1 students and visiting scholars from China.

We are deeply saddened by this turn of events. We stand with our students and scholars from China who are here to learn from and share their knowledge with IUPUI. We welcome students and visiting scholars regardless of background or citizenship, knowing that we are better together.
