March 20 Message to Students Scheduled to Participate in May and Summer Faculty-Led CWRU Study Abroad Programs: May and Summer Faculty-Led Study Abroad Programs Cancelled Due to Coronavirus

We regret to inform you that the rapid global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic requires that the University cancel all May and Summer Faculty-Led CWRU Study Abroad programs. University officials waited as long as possible to act, in hopes that you still would be able to participate in the exceptional academic and life experiences each program provides. 

With regard to immediate areas of concern:


Please work with your Navigator to find an alternate course, if needed.


All students will receive full refunds on program fees and deposits paid. Fees paid by credit card will be credited back to the credit card that was used to make the payment. Please allow a minimum of one week for processing.


Most of our programs require students to purchase their own flights.  If you have already purchased your flight, contact your carrier as soon as possible to inquire about refunds and changes to your ticket.  See Updated Flexible Airline Policies for guidance.

We are deeply sorry that this pandemic demands that we cancel these programs out of profound concern for your health and safety. We believe strongly in the academic and personal value of every one of these programs, and very much wish you could have participated in them. Given the information available at this time, we felt that canceling the programs now gives priority to protecting your health and safety.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your course instructor or to the Office of Education Abroad at
