COVID-19 Update

As the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to intensify and the U.S. Department of State has increased all international travel to “ Global Level 4 Health Advisory - Do Not Travel” and suspended visa services worldwide, GSI has made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person activities this summer.

GSI deeply regrets having to cancel this diverse and enriching program and remains committed to supporting and facilitating international experiences with student safety as our priority. We believe in the value of international experiences and hope to have the opportunity to host students at Stony Brook University during GSI 2021.

For information on how this will impact your program, please see below. These are challenging times for all of us and the GSI team remains available to answer any questions you may have.
