In compliance with the UMBC CPCC, our office is excited to resume education abroad in a safe and responsible way beginning with Winter 2022 and Spring 2022!
At this time, applications will only be able to be opened for specific program types in specific locations based on the latest guidance and best practices. The Education Abroad team will be conducting regular reviews of program locations to monitor the safety conditions. While applications will be open, studying abroad is not guaranteed. A program may be cancelled up to the departure date if conditions warrant.
As we resume international travel, international conditions are still very fluid and conditions in specific destinations may change quickly resulting in cancelation of the planned study abroad experience. Students are expected to be in regular communication with the Education Abroad staff, have a back-up academic continuity plan, and be flexible with their program selection.
Pursuant to the UMBC international travel policy, students are only able to study abroad in locations that have a Department of State Level 1 or 2 travel advisory and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Travel Health Notice of 1 or 2 and on programs that have sufficient health and safety support.
