Hot Issues Covering:

  • VISA & boarder control interpretation

*Interpretation over following VISA arrangements.

*Interpretation over when and how to enter the US?

  • State and school policies interpretation

*The impacts of grad & PHD applications with deferring semesters or online courses.

*The credit system of online courses. Are these courses considered the same as on-site courses? Are they transferable?



The covid-19 has changed students' life in different aspects. Ceased China-US flight, canceled US VISA interviews, online courses, while reassuring people from the fear of disease, these measures have troubled international students from different countries. When could the VISA interviews be normalized? When could the China-US flight be recovered? When some schools gave automatic pass/no grade last Spring, how would professor see future applications that have affected by this year?


AmCham South China is honored to have Associate Director Prof. Justin Wyatt from School of Communication, Associate Director Prof. Norbert Mundorf from School of Communication, Dean Prof. Jeannette E. Riley from College of Arts and Sciences, Mr. R. Bowen Gillie Coordinator of International Admission office, share their views on the expectation of next semesters, the future of education and the most concerned questions bear in our minds.
