COVID-19 Response

Dear Partners,

In response to evolving COVID-19 vaccination regulations in the U.S. and abroad, we are updating our Covid Vaccination Policy as of May 1, 2023.  

For programs beginning on or after May 1, 2023, Accent will no longer require proof of Covid-19 vaccination for participation in our programs.  Accent strongly recommends participants be up to date with Covid-19 vaccination, pursuant to CDC guidelines. 

Please note:  According to current Spanish entry regulations, participants on programs in Spain will need to bring proof of vaccination, recovery from Covid-19 or a negative Covid-19 test for entry to the country. More details on entry requirements will be provided by Accent via the Accent Enrollment Portal.

Accent continues to monitor local regulations in each of our program locations. We have a designed a protocol aimed at minimizing the risk of contagion on our programs while at the same time maintaining the quality and integrity of the educational experience.

Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, Accent has endeavored to create dependable networks for obtaining the latest and most reliable information on the real time situation in our European locations. Our risk assessment network includes local, regional, and national health authorities, medical advisors, legal counselors, local educational institutions, and associations of American university programs abroad.

Accent monitors COVID-19 and disease outbreaks worldwide through the CDC, the WHO, the US Department of State, international and US partner universities, local public health agencies and other government resources.
