The International Students & Programs Office (ISPO) is deeply concerned about the coronavirus outbreak and sincerely hope that you and your family and friends have not been negatively impacted. Your health, safety and well-being are our priority. We continue to monitor the situation and are here to provide support to our international student community.

Below is a list of frequently asked questions about travel, enrollment, employment and campus resources. Please visit the current UC San Diego Information about the Coronavirus site for more information or talk to an ISPO Advisor if you have any questions or need support.


Due to the rapidly evolving situation, updates will be made to this page as we have more information. Please reference the FAQ pages below frequently for updates:

  • Effective Friday, March 20, 2020, ISPO is closed to the public for in-person service due to the State of California “Stay at Home Order” (Executive Order N-33-20).

    ISPO continues to provide all advising services through virtual Zoom advising and email. All requested documents will be mailed to you through U.S. Postal Service mail or Express Mail. These measures not only serve to protect both you and our staff through recommended social distancing, but they are designed to better serve you with more accessible advising and information online.

Stay Healthy Tips

Remember these simple tips to help stay well:

  • Become familiar with and recognize symptoms of illness.
  • Seek care immediately if you have recently traveled within the affected region and are experiencing these symptoms.
  • Always practice good hygiene:
    • Wash hands.
    • Cover mouth while coughing and sneezing (into the crook of your elbow rather than your hands is best).
    • Avoid touching your face, eyes and nose.
    • Avoid sharing food, cups or utensils.
    • Get an annual flu shot.
    • Stay home if you are sick.
