University of Iowa tightens controls amid international student concerns - Vanessa Miller, The Gazette

The University of Iowa has tightened enrollment checks and balances on international students after auditors found some were inappropriately waived through English-language requirements or taking too many online courses. The internal audit’s findings come amid reports of widespread cheating involving international students. Auditors also discovered that not all of the university’s international students here on F-1 visas are pursuing a required “full course of study” as defined by federal regulations. Undergraduate students are supposed to take at least 12 hours a semester; graduate students must take at least nine hours; and no more than one course or three credits can come via online or distance education, according to the federal guidelines. http://www.thegazette.com/subject/news/education/higher-education/university-of-iowa-tightens-controls-amid-international-student-concerns-20160902
