From Monday, July 20, 2020, students will be allowed back on campus for classes. The health and safety of our Eagles is of paramount importance. To ensure the well-being of students and staff, the following are some of the measures that will be put in place at the campus:

Embry-Riddle Asia is working closely with the campuses to ensure that we adhere to the Singapore Government's advice pertaining to PEI operation, health and safety.The University will continue to monitor the situation closely and plan classes accordingly. Should a campus closure arise, Embry-Riddle Asia is prepared to deliver classes online. Ranked as one of the top online educators for the past seven years, the University has the technology and expertise to provide engaging and interactive remote instructional experiences.

Office Closure:

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.
