Information About Fall 2020 for Continuing Students

Are you starting school in the Summer/Fall? Review our information for new international students.

For information about the August 24 modification to the UMN's Fall 2020 plans, review our update and the Safe Campus website.

We know you probably have a lot of questions about planning for the fall. If you have not already, please review the Safe Campus website for updates on the University's Fall 2020 plans.

We know that you likely have additional questions, particularly if you traveled home over the summer. ISSS is working with departments across the University to develop plans that will give you the flexibility needed to ensure you can continue your studies at the University, whether that is here in Minnesota or online from your home country. We are also advocating on the federal level for continued flexibility in the regulations.

We will send more information as soon as possible.
