Enroll for Spring

Madison College plans to continue offering most classes online in Spring 2021. To date the U.S. government has not announced any new guidance for F-1 student enrollment requirements for Spring 2021. It is our hope that F-1 students will continue to be allowed to enroll in all online classes, but if you have an in-person or hybrid course option that meets a program requirement or personal interest, it may be advisable to build that into your class schedule. We will keep you informed of any changes or announcements from the U.S. government regarding Spring 2021 enrollment as soon as we receive notification and we will work to accommodate your F-1 visa status needs accordingly. Please remember that there are two formats for online courses:

  • Online (No real-time interaction with instructor or classmates required. Class can be completed asynchronously and independently.)
  • Online – Live (Real-time interaction with others is required. Students will need to log-on and participate in an online, synchronous class format at specified times.)
