UCEDA International is making progress toward resuming normal operations, and we are delighted to see our students in class again!
As was announced last year, all F-1 students are expected to return to 100% in-person attendance beginning in April 2023.
The U.S. Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) had allowed temporary adaptations for some F-1 students to attend online classes during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, those temporary adaptations are ending at all schools this year. We understand this will be an adjustment for some students, and we are here to help.
Please take a moment to review the school’s policy on Attendance at www.uceda.edu/policies. If you have any questions or concerns about your attendance or your course schedule, please speak with an Academic Advisor at the school where you study. You may also contact us online with any questions: www.uceda.edu/contact.
More tools than ever before are available to prevent COVID-19 from placing strain on communities and healthcare systems. With current high levels of vaccination and high levels of population immunity from both vaccination and infections, the risk of severe illness from COVID-19 is greatly reduced for most people.
Effective March 3, 2022, the CDC now maintains a map of COVID-19 Community Levels to help communities and individuals make decisions based on their local context and their unique needs.
Public health officials recommend wearing a face mask if you have symptoms of COVID-19, tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 10 days, were exposed to someone with COVID-19 within the past 10 days, or if you live in a community with elevated or “high” levels of COVID-19.
Face masks are no longer required in most outdoor and indoor settings. Individuals may choose to wear a mask based on personal preference, informed by their personal level of risk. If you are immunocompromised or at high risk for severe disease, please talk to your healthcare provider about whether you need to wear a mask or take other precautions.
All individuals are encouraged to stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.
COVID-19 vaccines have been proven safe and highly effective. All adults and most children are now eligible for vaccination. There is no proof of residency or documentation required to be vaccinated. If you do not speak English, you can still receive a vaccine. All points of dispensing are asked to make translation or interpretation services available.
If you have not yet received the vaccine and wish to do so, please visit: www.vaccines.gov.
If you are exposed to COVID-19 and not vaccinated, you may be required to quarantine for 5 days before returning to in-person classes.
It’s time to take your life back.
We have taken enhanced health and safety measures—for you, our other students, and employees. An inherent risk of exposure to illness can exist in any public place where people are present. By visiting or attending classes at UCEDA, you voluntarily assume the associated risks. If you are feeling sick, especially if you are experiencing any symptoms related to COVID-19, please stay home. Get tested, and seek advice from a medical professional. We will continue to follow CDC recommendations and state guidelines for isolation and quarantine as applicable.
Let’s continue to work together to keep our communities safe and connected, while never giving up on our goals. UCEDA is here to help people improve their lives through education, today and always.
