ONLINE CLASSES DURING THE CURRENT CORONA VIRUS/ COVID-19 DISRUPTIONS
In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in New York State, Pace University is extending the remote learning period on all campuses, including New York City, Pleasantville, and White Plains, through August 29. At this time the ELI is able to process applications for part-time visitors, au pairs, and transfer I-20 F-1 Student Visa holders. Students who require an initial I-20 to interview for an F-1 Student Visa at the US Consulate in their home country may apply for Fall 2020. Due to SEVP and US Immigration guidance, we are not able to issue initial I-20s for our programs that are 100% online. Please contact us if you have any questions.
