The coronavirus outbreak throughout the world has raised many concerns amongst students, families, and staff (both abroad and at the CSU). The wellbeing of our students and international community is of the upmost importance to us and CSU IP has been monitoring the situation surrounding the COVID-19 worldwide closely.
As recommended by the CDC, students should get a booster shot if they are eligible and shots are available. In accordance with the CDC guidelines and CSU policy, we require that students be vaccinated for COVID-19 to participate in the program. Students are required to follow all CSU IP and host country safety protocols.
