"This is a huge victory for the entire international student community," ISA President Chittawan Boonsitanon said in a statement. "It is a testament to the importance of collaboration between the students and the administrators. However, we also recognize that there is still more work to be done and although the regulations have been rescinded, new guidance from SEVP is still required for Fall 2020. Until that happens, we demand that international students be given a choice to decide on how they pursue their coursework for Fall 2020 without jeopardizing their enrollment status."
