Update: On April 18, 2022, the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) extended its March 2020 COVID-19 guidance to cover the 2022-23 academic year. See NAFSA's page SEVP COVID-19 Guidance Sources for details.
In an April 4, 2022 letter to the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP), NAFSA CEO and Executive Director, Dr. Esther Brimmer, asked the agency to soon publish COVID-19 guidance for the coming 2022-2023 academic year. Noting the continued national emergency declaration, the letter states: "Schools and other institutions are in a state of transition towards greater normalcy as they balance multiple factors to adjust their curricula, polices, and procedures in this phase of the pandemic. An extension of SEVP’s COVID-19 accommodations policies for the upcoming academic year would allow the full spectrum of schools to focus on tailoring policies that make sense in the local context."
