Coronavirus Information for International Students

Welcome to Fall 2020!

ISAP welcomes all students back to campus for the Fall 2020 semester.  Classes will be taught mostly face-to-face, while some classes have transitioned to online courses.  Students, staff and faculty are all asked to adhere to public health guidance to ensure the safety of our community. The ISAP office is open on the Statesboro and Armstrong campuses but we encourage students to continue to utilize virtual services as much as possible.  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”. Continue to monitor your Georgia Southern email for updates from the University and ISAP.
