We take creating the conditions for academic success seriously, and we prioritize the safety of our students and staff. Our commitment to our students is that, at ACA, we continually monitor Public Health advisories and adjust as needed.
Currently, all countries associated with our ACA programs have moved into a no-COVID-vaccination requirement for visitors. In the event of sudden restrictions, new health requirements can be enforced at any moment, and we recommend that students comply with the health and safety policies set by their host country.
ACA is not responsible for any consequences or inconveniences resulting from not following ACA guidelines and/or refusing to comply with COVID-19 requirements and protocols of the host country.
Here are some guidelines:
Check Latest CDC Recommendations For The Host Country
Negative COVID-19 Test – Check with your airline on the requirements for each country on your itinerary.
Don’t Forget To Pack:
Life on Campus: in Dormitory, Cafeteria, and Classrooms – Our campuses abroad comply with WHO and their government guidelines.
Face Masks – You may be requested to wear face masks on campus and during program activities.
Frequent Hand Washing – Wash your hands as frequently as possible.
Health Monitoring – Keep monitoring your health throughout your study abroad program, and do all you can to stay healthy. Make it a new habit. 😊
Contact Tracing – You may be expected to participate in any contact tracing guidelines of the local community, potentially including mobile apps. Your Program Director will expand on this if applicable.
COVID-19 Symptoms or Exposure – Students must immediately notify dorm staff if they believe they have Covid-19 symptoms or have been exposed.
Isolation/Quarantine – This means you must remain strictly separated from others. If you are required to quarantine, your Program Director will guide you on how courses will be conducted remotely during that time.
Online Courses When Isolating – ACA is an immersive experience and not an online program, but online courses will be offered to students in isolation until they can resume classes in person.
ACA wishes all our students a safe and memorable study abroad experience. 😊
