Woodbury University continues to welcome students from around the world.  We are closely monitoring the situation and will adhere to any decisions made by the US government.

In all circumstances, such students should avoid travel to China or Iran at this time.

Additionally, it is essential that such individuals maintain valid student status while waiting in the U.S. for their Woodbury program to begin and they become eligible to transfer to Woodbury for study here. Since this group would already be in the U.S., no new visa stamp would be needed from the U.S. consulate since a valid visa stamp is only needed at the time of entry into the U.S.

After admission to the program, Woodbury will advise this population upon receipt of a request for immigration documentation.
