Students & Employees: Personal & University-Related Travel

The U.S. Department of State issued a Level 4 travel advisory (“do not travel”) for all international travel and advises U.S. citizens to avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19.

We strongly recommend that members of the USC community postpone non-essential personal travel at this time.

University-Related Travel 

  • All non-essential USC business travel remains suspended until further notice.
  • Keck Medicine of USC and the Keck School of Medicine of USC implemented a temporary ban on business travel for all international and domestic trips; all faculty and staff are strongly advised against personal travel to international destinations during this time.

International Students

USC’s Office of International Services encourages international students with personal travel plans outside of the United States to review the travel guidance on its website for information about required travel documents.

International students in Los Angeles who are having trouble finding flight routes home can reach out to the university’s travel service for advice and guidance. Please contact:

International students who are currently in their home countries can contact their local USC office for support.

Travel Restrictions

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued several arrival restrictions on China, Iran and certain countries in Europe.
