Georgia Southwestern takes pride in welcoming students from all over the world. Our diverse population of students, faculty, and staff makes GSW the perfect place for international students to experience the United States. With smaller class sizes allowing for more one-on-one interactions, students are able to get the support they need to get the education they deserve.

Vaccination Requirements for International Students

The CDC requires all F and J students to remain up to date with COVID-19 vaccines before traveling internationally.

  • You must be fully vaccinated with the primary series of an accepted COVID-19 vaccine to travel to the United States by plane if you are a non-U.S. citizen, non-U.S. immigrant (not a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, lawful permanent resident, or traveling to the United States on an immigrant visa). Only limited exceptions apply.
  • Before boarding a flight to the United States, consider getting tested for current infection with a viral test as close to the time of departure as possible (no more than 3 days) before travel.
  • Wearing a mask over your nose and mouth is recommended in indoor areas of public transportation (including airplanes) and indoors in U.S. transportation hubs (including airports).
