Spring Break 2019

Spring Break: March 11-18 (No Classes)

Spring will be here soon with no classes being held March 11-16! During this time campus will remain open, but will be less active.
Some of you may be taking advantage of this break to plan a trip or take a few days to relax and recharge. No matter what your plans, continue reading for preparations to make regarding international travel and remaining on campus during that time.

Traveling Internationally:

  • If your visa is expired and you leave the country, you will need to get in renewed while abroad before entering the U.S. This is not recommended during this break, as it’s so short.
  • Any student traveling internationally during break needs to have the travel endorsement signature on their I-20 (page 2) or DS-2019 (page 1).
    • If your I-20/DS-2019 was previously signed and the signature is a year old, you will need to have it signed again.
    • Signatures are only good for one year.

Stop by our offices in Adams House or Cumberland to have you documents signed.
