Status of Inbound Exchange at the CSU: Fall 2023

Dear Exchange Partners and Applicants,

Spring 2023 Courses: CSU campuses plan to resume with face-to-face instruction for most courses. Students should be prepared to have many back-up electives approved by their home university advisors. Students are strongly encouraged to be in contact with the International Offices at their host CSU campuses regarding any questions they have about their exchange including available courses and course registration.

Housing: Exchange applicants are urged to apply for on-campus housing as early as possible and/or seek off-campus housing options.

Visas: Please check with the nearest US Consulate or Embassy to get the latest update on the status of visa services and travel restrictions to the US. Here is a link to the US Department of State Visa Wait Times

COVID-19 Vaccination: The CSU made the decision to implement COVID-19 vaccination requirements. Each CSU campus will provide information on vaccination requirements to J-1 students on how and where non-vaccinated students can be vaccinated after arriving to their host CSU campus, if there are exceptions to the vaccination policy, and quarantine protocols. If your students have not been given any information about immunization and COVID-19 vaccination requirements from their host CSU campuses yet, advise students to contact their host CSU campus for information.

Please check this webpage periodically for updates.
