Remote Learning in Sanctioned Countries
It is important to be mindful of applicable export control and OFAC restrictions when planning to provide distance learning services (e.g. online courses) to someone outside the U.S. There are OFAC restrictions related to taking online courses abroad. Please contact the Export Control Officer to determine whether a general license exemption is applicable or to discuss other options available.
