While the U.S. Public Health and National Emergencies for COVID-19 have ended and restrictions are easing globally, potential risk to international travelers remains. All travelers are encouraged to plan to mitigate their risk before and during international travel.
Outgoing Study Abroad Students
International Safety and Security and study abroad staff will continue to connect with students and provide resources to support them during their time abroad. Students are encouraged to review the latest updates and resources for the education abroad community on Safety Abroad website:
- Countries retain their authority to treat COVID-19 as a health emergency, to include imposing strict mitigation measures (altering entry requirements, vaccinations, testing, etc.) at any time. Travelers should review country information before and during their program.
- A few international programs may still require proof of vaccination for participation. These programs will be identified during student advising for study abroad. Without disclosing vaccination status, students unable to vaccinate for medical or religious reasons should coordinate with study abroad advisers to identify other potential programs.
Incoming Exchange Students
Upon arrival to the United States, all students, faculty, and staff should follow the latest CDC guidance for international travel and quarantine and isolation.
