November 6 Message to Spring & Calendar Year 2021 Study Abroad Students: Study Abroad Update for Spring 2021 & CY 2021 Students

Dear Students, 

Due to health and safety concerns regarding the COVID-19 global pandemic and the CDC’s and U.S. State Department’s guidance for international travel, Study Abroad programs that were scheduled to depart in the Spring 2021 semester (including Calendar Year 2021 programs) were suspended (with the exception of programs in Ireland, Denmark, and South Korea).

The recent increase in COVID-19 cases around the world has also increased health and safety concerns, and this decision was reevaluated by the International Travel Review Committee and the Provost. After careful consideration, and out of an abundance of caution, University leaders have canceled all international travel for study abroad, including all appeals, for programs departing in Spring 2021.

While we are saddened that the impact of COVID-19 has resulted in the suspension of your program, we hope that you will consider applying to study abroad at another time. If you would like to switch your application to study abroad during another term, please contact your Study Abroad Advisor as soon as possible by Friday, November 13th. If you do not plan to switch your application, please notify your Study Abroad Advisor, and your deposit will be refunded.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Angela Miller
Director of Education Abroad
