Regarding COVID-19:

Rhodes is planning the fall semester to be 100% in-person. If you believe you may have difficulty arriving in time for the beginning of classes, email Dr. Hillis ( right away. All updates about the Fall 2021 Semester will be posted on our COVID Updates pages. Also, our staff will communicate important international student updates to you, specifically, as soon as we have them.

When can I move into my residence hall?

We know travel remains difficult for many students. We expect new international students to arrive on August 11, 2021.
