Education Abroad News

Ohio State is forming a working group of the International Travel Policy Committee to develop protocols and assess the viability of university-wide international travel by students, including education abroad programs for the 2020-21 academic year. The working group will develop assessment criteria to align preexisting health and safety standards with current travel restrictions and university precautions related to COVID-19.

With autumn semester on the horizon, guidelines already have been put in place that give Ohio State the flexibility to review education abroad programs at various intervals based on program start dates, travel timelines and financial commitment deadlines. The assessment process takes into consideration many factors including guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Department of State, State of Ohio travel requirements and university guidelines among other national and international resources.
