Dear Students and Families,

By now you have received updates from API and CIS regarding the recommendation to make plans for your return to the U.S. as soon as possible.  We share your concern for your health and safety, and your deep disappointment that your study abroad experience is coming to a premature end. Be sure to carefully follow all instructions regarding forms and check out procedures. 

We would ask at this time that you send a copy of your flight itinerary to me at this email, and let either Heather St. Germaine or me know when you have arrived in the United States.  If we don't hear from you, we will attempt to contact you individually. Please let me know  If you need assistance with your travel arrangements.

As you receive more information from your host institutions regarding the requirements for completing your courses, keep in mind that Springfield College will continue to offer you support and guidance.  You may reach out to any of the services of the college, including the International Center, the Academic Support Center, the Dean of Students Office, and the Health and Counseling Services.

I wish you safe travels and a warm reunion with your families.

Best regards,

Deborah Alm | Director
Doggett International Center
