Travel Restrictions and Guidance FAQ

What are the latest governmental travel restrictions that impact international students? Are we still required to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival?

The U.S. government is currently enforcing an entry ban on foreign passport holders who have been in certain countries, including China, the United Kingdom, Brazil and most European countries, within 14 days of their arrival to the United States. See the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website for more information and a full list of countries.

What this means, practically, is that students residing in any of these restricted countries will need to spend at least 14 days in a different, unrestricted country before traveling to the United States.

Furthermore, all travelers from international destinations are required by the San Diego County Department of Public Health to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in the United States before arriving on campus.

Please consider these safety restrictions imposed by the U.S. government and plan your travel carefully. If you arrive in the United States in advance of the start of classes, you must have completed your 14-day quarantine within the United States prior to starting classes.
