Public Health Advisory: Coronavirus

The University of Virginia continues to respond to the outbreak of COVID-19. See UVA's Return to Grounds website and Fall 2020 Student Resource site for the latest decisions and information. 

Due to the U.S. Department of State Global Health Advisory - Level 4: Do Not Travel and CDC Level 3 Warning: Global COVID-19 Pandemic Notice for all locations outside the U.S, education programs have been cancelled and student international travel for University-related purposes (including credit-bearing study abroad, research, and internships) has been suspended for SUMMER AND FALL 2020. This includes student participation in non-UVA education abroad programs. 

Petitions for an exemption to the suspension to participate in education abroad programs are not being accepted; students will not be permitted to request retroactive transfer credit for coursework completed internationally, either.  Petitions for an exemption to the suspension for essential travel are being considered from advanced graduate students and GME residents; email for further details.

If you are returning from abroad, consult this CDC page and information for travelers from VDH. Students who were abroad during Spring Semester 2020 are also encouraged to use the resources on the Support for Spring Students page.
