 Coronavirus Updates as of 3/12/20

The University of South Alabama is a globally engaged institution with faculty, staff, and students who frequently travel internationally as well as domestically. The health and safety of our university community is a top priority for the institution. Please check frequently the University homepage at for updates.

In light of the current outbreak of COVID-19 and the fact that the World Health Organization has now declared it a global pandemic, we are taking all reasonable precautions to keep our community safe and informed. Based on the expanding global outbreak, the significant risk of exposure during travel, and guidance from experts in public health and infectious disease, the University of South Alabama is implementing interim travel guidelines and restrictions. With the exception of those trips currently underway, all upcoming university-sponsored international faculty, staff, and student travel is suspended effective immediately and until further notice. 

USA has made the challenging decision to cancel all upcoming study abroad programs and international student travel effective immediately and until further notice.  If you are a student currently participating on or applying to a study abroad program, please communicate with your study abroad advisor to answer any questions.  As always, the safety of our students is our top priority.

The University is closely monitoring the developing situation and will update travel guidelines as Center for Disease Control risk levels change.  We will update this page with any updates to current policies.

Thank you for your support of international education.
