Remember Tri Valley University Raid? Now comes University of Northern Virginia raid by FBI
Several Students have posted comments that raised concerns about UNVA. Infact one student said “UNVA should Next on ICE’s List”
Quoting From Chronicle of Higher Education
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security raided the University of Northern Virginia on Thursday morning, hauling away computers and boxes of paperwork and notifying the suburban Washington institution that it may lose its ability to accept foreign students.
A Homeland Security spokeswoman, Cori Bassett, said Thursday night that she could not provide details about what led federal agents to raid Northern Virginia, citing an ongoing investigation.
The raid on Northern Virginia, which has called itself the most popular American university for Indian students, is likely to cause an uproar in India, the second-largest sender of foreign students to the United States.
Federal regulations say that foreign students must be physically present on campus and can take no more that a single course per semester online. Northern Virginia officials have said that its students commute regularly to Virginia to attend classes.
From ICE Site
Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP)-certified schools are subject to a review of their certification at any time based on regulations.
On July 28, 2011, pursuant to a review of University of Northern Virginia’s (UNVA) certification, an SEVP representative served school officials at UNVA with a Notice of Intent to Withdraw (NOIW) the school’s SEVP-certification and SEVIS access.
