COVID-19 & Fall 2020

June 2020:  The University of Minnesota System, which includes the University of Minnesota Duluth, has not yet determined whether classes will be in person or online in the fall due to COVID-19.   Please continue to check back for updates. 

If fall semester is in person, new international students traveling into the US from abroad may have to self-quarantine for two weeks after entering the United States.   In person international student orientation is tentatively scheduled for August 24-27 for undergraduate students, and August 28th for graduate students.    Please check back for updates.   Contact us if you have questions.
