Ninth Circuit rules against third travel ban

Jan. 29, 2018

In December, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling allowing the Trump administration to fully implement its third travel ban. That ruling supersedes a decision, also in December, by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to partially block the travel ban. The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals also heard oral arguments on the third travel ban in December but has not yet issued a decision. Northeastern will continue to monitor the situation closely and update this page as more information becomes available. Please contact the university's Office of Global Services at OGS@northeastern.edu if you have any questions, and review travel related information on their website.
