Staying Safe at School

UCEDA International is making progress toward resuming normal operations, and we are delighted to see our students in class again!

We continue to follow guidance from health authorities at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other governmental agencies, as we are committed to the safety and well-being of the communities we serve. Thank you for your participation, patience, and understanding during these extraordinary times.

UCEDA International continues to offer both in-person and online instruction at this time. Students have the option to temporarily count online classes towards a full course of study until June 30, 2022.

New students who began after March 9, 2020 may be required to attend in-person classes, or a hybrid program that is not 100 percent online. Students can maintain nonimmigrant F-1 status while engaging in hybrid programs during the ongoing pandemic.

Recently, federal and state agencies have updated their guidance related to indoor gatherings. Therefore, UCEDA has also updated its policies and guidance as outlined below.


Updated January 1, 2022:


Face Coverings

While the rates of disease transmission remain substantial, everyone must wear a mask covering the mouth and nose at all times while inside the school.

The requirement to wear a face mask is not permanent. When the rate of transmission in local communities is lower, or when indicated by health officials, we expect that the use of face masks will become optional.


Temperature Screening

All individuals will continue to undergo a temperature screening upon arrival to the school. Anyone displaying a temperature of 100.4 F (38 C) or above will not be allowed entry.


 Social Distancing

Individuals who are not fully vaccinated should continue to practice social distancing. While capacity limits on indoor gatherings have been lifted, UCEDA will continue to offer an expanded selection of course schedules to avoid over-crowding in classrooms and hallways. Physical barriers will remain at the front desk and select other areas for the time being.

Please continue to follow all posted instructions while present at UCEDA.


 Cleanliness and Sanitization

Routine cleaning and disinfection of high-traffic and high-touch areas will continue, including for student desks, tables, chairs, handles, restrooms and more. Hand sanitizer is available in the reception and common areas, and students are highly encouraged to wash and sanitize their hands frequently while visiting.


Vaccination Vaccination

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:


It’s up to you.

We have taken enhanced health and safety measures—for you, our other students, and employees. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the CDC, elderly people and those with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By visiting or attending classes at UCEDA, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

If you know you have been exposed to someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19, or if you are experiencing any symptoms, please stay home and seek advice from a medical professional.

Let’s continue to work together to keep our communities safe, while never giving up on our goals. UCEDA is here to help people improve their lives through education, today and always.
