I’m an international student and concerned about travel.
The U.S. government has taken unprecedented steps with respect to travel in response to the growing public health threat posed by COVID-19:
- The CDC has issued travel guidance related to COVID-19. For the most up-to-date travel restrictions and guidelines, please visit the CDC Information for Travel page.
- Effective February 2, at 5 p.m., the U.S. government suspended entry of foreign nationals who have been in China within the past 14 days.
- U.S. citizens, residents, and their immediate family members who have been in Hubei province and other parts of mainland China are allowed to enter the U.S., but they are subject to health monitoring and possible quarantine for up to 14 days.
The Office for International Students & Scholars (OISS) is here to support international students at KGI with any questions, concerns or needs. Please contact Catharyne Magro at Catharyne_Magro@kgi.edu or 909-607-7176 and let us know how we may support you.
Will students continue receiving financial aid?
Students may continue to receive financial aid during periods of enrollment. The Department of Education has provided flexibility in which an institution can provide an online educational platform to prevent the disruption of the spring semester due to COVID-19. The Financial Aid Staff is closely monitoring the updates from the Department of Education and how it relates to financial aid.
Will tuition be reduced since classes are online?
The Department of Education has provided flexibility in which an institution that only offers ground-based classes provide an online educational platform on a temporary basis to prevent the disruption of the spring semester due to COVID-19. While this remains in place, there will be no proration of tuition as it is expected students are given the same access to complete the spring semester accordingly.
I have questions that are not covered in this FAQ or in KGI’s email communication. Who can I contact?
