Quarantine Requirements for ALL New Students

FULLY VACCINATED students DO NOT need to quarantine after they arrive.

UNVACCINATED students MUST quarantine for 7 days upon arrival to the US.  We follow a “self-quarantine” model – you must remain in your room/home during this time and limit contact with other people. You can leave your room to get food. You will attend classes on zoom.
