At Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff is our number one priority. We are closely monitoring all health and travel advisories related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
Embry-Riddle Asia is monitoring the situation carefully and adjusting operational and teaching procedures as the situation evolves taking guidance from the Singapore Ministries of Health, Manpower and Education.
From Wednesday, April 8, 2020, the Singapore Ministry of Education (MOE) instructed all Institutes of Higher Learning to suspend classroom-based learning in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. All Embry-Riddle Asia classes have shifted online for the duration of the March/April/May term. The ERCI campus is closed and no additional classroom-based learning, group-based learning or extra-curricular activities will take place on campus until further notice. Professors have been encouraged to hold lessons via EagleVision at the regularly scheduled class time and students are advised to follow the instructions of their professors which may vary from class to class.
Our fellow students, faculty and staff at the Daytona Beach and Prescott campuses made this shift in March and Embry-Riddle Asia has prepared for this move. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has been ranked as one of the top online educators for the past seven years and has the technology and expertise to provide engaging and interactive remote instructional experiences. We will work hard to ensure that all students, and especially graduating seniors, complete their courses on time.
2020 Fall Terms:
The 2020 Fall terms are scheduled to take place as planned. Mode of instruction for the delivery of the courses will be planned according to the government’s guidelines.
From Tuesday, April 7, 2020, the Embry-Riddle Asia office has closed and all staff are working from home. Embry-Riddle Asia was prepared for this move and we’re able to fully support all office functions remotely.
Prospective students are encouraged to reach out to us via our Social Media channels and/or email at email@example.com. Prospective student counseling and admissions are still fully functional.
Current students requiring academic support are encouraged to reach out to their assigned Academic Advisor and/or Student Services via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you were on a cruise ship or traveled overseas recently, you should declare this to the campus’s student services team and limit interactions with other people for 14 days. In keeping with the Ministry of Health’s guidelines, from 20 March 2020, 2359 hrs, Embry-Riddle students, faculty and staff who are Singapore citizens, permanent residents, and long-term pass holders returning to Singapore will be issued a 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN). The SHN starts from the day after they return to Singapore. Those under the SHN will have to provide proof of the place where they will serve the 14-day SHN and remain in their place of residence at all times for 14 days.
