COVID - 19 Announcements

(Announcements have been sent and created by NSEA)

NSEA is currently monitoring the coronavirus and how it could affect our campuses and NSEA events. Please see below for announcements:

  • [3/5/2020] The Department of Education, Office of Postsecondary Education has released advice on addressing interruptions related to the coronavirus. In particular, they have addressed the use of FWS funds in the event that an institution or worksite is closed due to the virus. You can view that information on the Federal Student Aid's website
  • [3/10/2020] NSEA Events: The health and safety of NSEA event attendees is our top priority. According to the most recent information from the CDC, for most people, the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus that causes Coronavirus (COVID-19) is thought to be low. However, we are working to take the fullest precautions for all of our events and are monitoring guidance related to the COVID-19 situation closely. We will continue to evaluate and evolve our preparations as the situation may warrant.

    SEE Training:  All scheduled SEE Trainings will proceed as planned unless otherwise notified. Given the unique and ever-changing circumstance presented with the Coronavirus, NSEA will follow the SEE Cancellation Policy to offer alternatives for event cancellations (see below) if due to the Coronavirus
    • If the registered trainee must cancel due to travel restrictions placed by their institution or the trainee is sick or self-quarantined, the participant will be:
      • Allowed to transfer registration to another SEE training location, but the training must occur before the end of 2020.
    • If SEE Training is canceled by NSEA due to cancellations by the site host or the registrant list drops below eight (8), participants will be:
      • Allowed to transfer registration to another SEE training location, but the training must occur before the end of 2020.
      • Receive a full refund for the registration.
