Global Education Autumn, Winter and Spring 2022 Program Updates

Travel for Office of International Affairs managed programs has been assessed for autumn semester and winter break programs. Third party provider and exchange programs in South Korea and the United Kingdom were approved for autumn semester. All faculty-led winter break programs have been cancelled.

Spring semester is being assessed for viability. Program viability decisions will be rendered as follows:

  • Spring semester 2022 programs: September 24, 2021
  • Spring break 2022 faculty-led programs and summer 2022 programs with required pre-requisite courses: November 10, 2021
  • Summer term programs
    • May session faculty-led: January 31
    • Later summer faculty-led: February 28
    • Third party provider and direct enroll: March 14 

Should it be determined that a program is not viable, decisions may be rendered earlier than the published deadline dates. These viability dates are for OIA-managed programs only.
