May 19 update regarding COVID-19
The IUC is gradually reverting to pre-pandemic conditions. Most classes are now conducted in person and the Summer 2023 program, which starts on June 22, will be fully in person. However, students, faculty, and staff are required to submit negative COVID test results on a regular basis as a condition of attendance. Visitors to the IUC are also asked to comply with our testing requirements; for details, please contact us in advance. We continue to monitor the situation closely and will provide updates when circumstances change. Read more
