SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — San Diego State University announced Monday it is suspending the university's inbound and outbound study abroad exchange program for the fall semester.

In a release, the university said that "given the long-term uncertainty associated with the coronavirus pandemic as well as the indeterminate status of federal and local agencies," fall 2020 study abroad programs are suspended.

SDSU added that international students studying at the campus for the entirety of their degree would not be affected. The inbound and outbound exchange programs impacted include:

  • SDSU Bilateral Exchange
  • International Business Bilateral Exchange
  • CSU International Exchange Programs
  • ISEP Exchange

"We know that many students have been planning to study abroad in the fall semester or for the upcoming academic year," SDSU said in a release. "With that in mind, the advising team in the SDSU Study Abroad office is available to support them as they explore opportunities available during future terms or subsequent to graduation."

More information is available on the school's website here.

Currently, all SDSU instructional activities now virtual, including upcoming summer courses. Only essential employees are reporting to campus during California's stay at home order.
