Due to the very real concerns present today in our own country and the advice of the health organizations, we, together with our university partners, have made the difficult yet responsible decision to suspend Fall 2020 programs in all of our six locations.
We know cancelled programs have brought disappointment to many who were planning their international experience, so please know this decision was not made lightly. Our main concern is for the well-being of the students, staff, faculty and the Accent community in each of our cities.
Accent is committed to opening its Centers and resuming international programming in Spring 2021 and students are encouraged to shift their plans where possible and point towards 2021 and the new year right around the corner.
Accent monitors disease outbreaks worldwide through the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. Department of State, international and U.S. partner universities, local public health agencies and government resources.
