International Students

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted international travel for many people. If you are unable to obtain a visa or cannot travel to the U.S. in time to start Fall 2020 classes on campus, your options may include deferring or enrolling in online courses from abroad, if available. The availability of online coursework is contingent upon the revision of federal restrictions and the ability for UNCSA to virtually deliver your needed courses.

  • For incoming international students contact your Admissions Counselor to reach a decision and plan accordingly.
  • Returning international students, please contact your arts school dean or associate dean to reach a decision and plan accordingly.

Housing and Quarantine Update

Once arriving in the US, international travelers should stay in their residence hall, practice social distancing and monitor their health for 14 days. Contact TaWanna Archia if you need assistance with meal delivery and other needs. Students who have registered for in-person classes cannot attend in-person classes during this 14-day period. Please keep this in mind when making your travel arrangements.
