International students Fall 2020

The US State Department released a statement announcing that students residing in countries on the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) COVID-19 travel ban list are not permitted to enter the US, even if they already have a valid student visa.


Students from travel ban countries

If you live in a country on the CDC’s travel ban list, you are unable to attend FLC in person for Fall 2020. However,

  • You may take courses online. We offer limited 100% online courses, so you may not find everything you need for your major, but this could keep you on track to graduate.
  • Your scholarship for 2020-2021 is waiting for your return to FLC for the 2021-2022 year, should you choose to come to FLC at that point. We are committed honoring the scholarships we’ve offered.

Students from countries not on the travel ban list

If your country of residence is not the CDC’s list, you may still come to campus in Fall 2020. We are issuing new I-20 visas clarifying that our classes are conducted in-person.

Study abroad, international research & other travel

We are not participating in any conferences or other trips/travel that would take students, staff, or faculty overseas.

Study Abroad Programs

FLC strongly recommends that students NOT study abroad this fall semester. If you choose to do so, FLC will do its best to support you in your studies. However, students will be responsible for all costs incurred due to changes or disruptions related to the COVID-19 pandemic; such costs will not be covered by FLC.
