For our Summer 2020 Session, the ELI will not be accepting international applicants from any country that the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has designated with a Level 2 or 3 Travel Health Notice.

We further require new Spring II students who have travelled to or had layovers in Level 2 or 3 countries during the past 30 days to self-quarantine for 14 days prior to arriving on NDMU's campus and sign a form stating they have done so.

Current ELI students travelling to any countries designated with a Level 2 or 3 Travel Health Notice during Spring or Summer break will be required to sign our “COVID-19 ELI Notification and Student Agreement” form, which states that they have self-quarantined for 14 days prior to returning to NDMU's campus.

Finally, we strongly recommend all members of the ELI community to reconsider any international travel plans during the coming weeks and months, including Spring and Easter breaks. Students, faculty, and staff should be aware of the associated risk of disruptions to their reentry to the United States. Based on quickly evolving international travel guidance, your return to the U.S. or to campus may be interrupted by federal or state restrictions.

Any member of the University community who travels to a country designated as Level 2 or 3 by the CDC due to Coronavirus – whether the country’s designation occurs before departure or during the trip – must contact the ELI Director ( before returning to campus for clearance.

We also require such individuals to complete the Returning Traveler Self-Reporting Form.
