Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 Study Abroad:

The outlook of study abroad remains uncertain and we are here to support you with the decision about whether to defer.  We encourage you to take into consideration what you will do if your desired program is cancelled or if you are unable to travel to your host country due to the travel restrictions.  Many study abroad partners have cancelled, postponed, or substantially altered their academic programs due to worldwide travel restrictions.  We strongly recommend that you contact your Academic Advisors to determine courses on-campus and to enroll in those courses for the Summer 2020 or Fall 2020 in the event that you are unable to study abroad as planned.  SUMMER 2020 AND FALL 2020 COURSES OFFERED ON-LINE THROUGH YOUR INTENDED PROGRAM ABROAD ARE NOT CONSIDERED STUDY ABROAD, CREDITS ARE NOT APPROVED, AND WILL NOT TRANSFER.
