Coronavirus Information for International Students

Georgia Southern University has temporary suspended instruction for 2 weeks, starting March 16, in order to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission on our campuses. Instruction has been moved online for the remainder of the semester starting March 30. The university is not closed but ISAP staff will be working remotely during this time.

We will be available during limited office hours. To schedule a meeting go to the ISSS Portal, click on One Steps, then click Immigration Advising Appointment Request and scroll down to the links that say “schedule with Tanya/Sara”.

International students who live on campus will be allowed to remain in their residence halls. Monitor your Georgia Southern email for updates from University Housing and complete the emailed form to indicate if you plan to remain in on-campus housing. The Dining facilities will be open on a limited schedule and Health Services will be available for students.
