To Bluedata Community,
We hope you are all staying safe and well. We know that these past few weeks haven't been easy and we'd like to extend our concerns for all our students, faculty and staff.
Due to COVID-19, the US government has temporarily allowed International F-1 students to take more online courses. Since March 2020, Bluedata students have been taking online instruction, as allowed by the US government.
Recently, the US government has updated their guidelines. Starting from Fall 2020, International F-1 students in English language training programs must resume in-person class instruction. Therefore, to comply with the US government's new guidelines, Bluedata is planning to offer in-person classes from Fall 2020 semester, around September/October. Additionally, New York State will start Phase 4 of its re-opening, which will include possible school re-opening. We are working on preparing a plan, and will update all students on more information, along with any changes to school operations.
Until this Fall, F-1 students should still take online courses, so please continue to attend our online classes this summer and your attendance is vital for your status.
If there are any further updates from the US government or local government, we will also keep you updated.
With all the best wishes, stay well!
Bluedata International Institute
