Education Abroad update for spring 2021

The University continues to carefully monitor the COVID-19 situation globally and due to uncertain conditions abroad has made the difficult decision to cancel all spring 2021 undergraduate and graduate Education Abroad semester-long programs. However, the University’s Travel Review Subcommittee will review and consider petitions from students or faculty who wish to host or embark upon spring 2021 abroad programs that are shorter in duration and in destinations deemed to be low-risk.

The minimum criteria for students or faculty leaders to submit a petition are: the Education Abroad Program is short duration (less than a semester-length program) and the destination falls below a CDC Level 3 Health Notice, as well as a Department of State Level 3 Travel Advisory for a period of two months at the time of a petition’s submission.

If you have questions, please contact the Center for Education Abroad at (585) 275-7532 or Global Engagement at
