Fall 2020 & ISSS Resources


A Message of Support from ISSS

Emory is moving forward with exciting new plans for the fall 2020 semester. ISSS is working with international students and scholars as they make plans to study and work at Emory in the fall. Next, we are offering Q&A sessions for international students to answer questions and provide support as you make fall plans. 

We know that many members of our international community are from countries affected by issues related to the coronavirus pandemic. We care about you and your loved ones, and we want to support you during this unprecedented time. 

As we work with offices across the Emory campus to strengthen our support and develop resources for the unique needs of international students and scholars, we welcome your thoughts or suggestions for any way that we can provide additional support. 

We want you to know that we are here for you. Don’t hesitate to reach out to  your ISSS advisor with any questions or concerns.
