COVID-19 Update: International J-1 Student and J-1 Scholar Advising:

The International Center is closed to the public until further notice, based on the

 NJ Governor Announces Statewide Stay at Home Order.

In response the COVID-19 virus and the measures Rowan University has implemented on campus to encourage “social distancing”, all international student and scholar advising will be done via email obeid@rowan.edu and phone (856) 256-4999 in order to limit the possible transmission of the virus. There will be no in-person appointments or walk-in advising hours. 

Students and scholars who wish to depart the U.S. and need travel signatures may submit a request to obeid@rowan.edu  and we will issue a new form shipped to you instead of submitting the travel signature requests in person.

We will continue to monitor the situation, and will post additional information if the situation changes. In the meantime, please continue to stay informed and up to date as the situation changes globally. Please stay safe and well, and seek medical attention if you do not feel well. Please follow the directions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

What to do if you are sick with 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV). 

As of December 6th, all air passengers eligible for entry into the United States, regardless of vaccination status, must show a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 1 day before travel to the United States with limited exceptions or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 in the past 90 days.
