Study Abroad & COVID-19

All Spring 2020 study abroad programs have been cancelled and all students who were abroad have safely returned to their respective homes.

While there is a Global Level 4 Travel Advisory in effect, the CIP cannot authorize any new study abroad programs or guarantee whether fall 2020 programs will run. We will continue monitoring analyses and risk assessments from various agencies to make decisions as swiftly and responsibly as possible.

In the meantime, we are encouraging all approved 2020-2021 study abroad applicants to continue with the pre-departure processes outlined by CIP and Partner Program staff to prepare for the opportunity to study abroad in the fall if conditions change and travel is advised before your approved program begins.

We encourage all Study Abroad applicants to stay in touch with CIP staff and to let us know if you have questions or concerns by emailing cip@kzoo.edu

Study Away & COVID-19

While we certainly hope that domestic travel is allowed and recommended by fall 2020, we are aware of the uncertainty of what is yet to come. However, we are encouraging all applicants and approved participants to continue with the processes outlined by the CIP and Study Away staff to prepare for the opportunity to study away if conditions change and travel is advised before your approved program begins.

We encourage all Study Away applicants to stay in touch with CIP staff and to let us know if you have questions or concerns by emailing cip@kzoo.edu
