Based on guidance from the Chancellor’s Office dated March 9, 2020, effective immediately the campus and its auxiliary organizations will suspend all international and non-essential domestic travel from now through May 31, 2020.  Auxiliary organizations include the Associated Students of CSUF, Inc.

Essential domestic travel is generally defined as travel that is critical to the educational mission or the business operations of the university; there are no alternatives means to participate such as via online; and cannot be postponed to a later date. Any exceptions related to domestic travel must be approved by the divisional vice-presidents. In addition any exceptions related to international travel must be routed through the divisional vice-presidents for consideration.  Any questions regarding this process may be directed to University Risk Management at (657) 278-7346.
