NOTICE OF CHANGE IN PROGRAM DELIVERY. ACTION REQUIRED.
In accordance with USCIS and SEVP guidelines for international students, Harrisburg University will resume the executive delivery model of all its graduate programs on March 1, 2023, requiring international students to participate in on-campus weekend sessions three Saturdays per semester as scheduled for the duration of their studies.
In-person attendance is mandatory for all international students. Students who fail to attend in-person sessions will jeopardize their visa status. Please make all necessary arrangements for travel and accommodations well in advance to attend the mandatory sessions.

On April 18, 2020, The Student Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) issued guidance which enabled schools and students to engage in distance learning in excess of regulatory limits due to the continuing public health concerns created by COVID-19. Since then, Harrisburg University has delivered its graduate programs in a virtual format in accordance with this guidance. In preparation for the end of this guidance, Harrisburg University will resume its executive delivery model in March 2023 requiring all international students to attend the mandatory, in-person sessions three Saturdays per semester as scheduled and weekly classes online.
