Semester and Academic Year International Experiences

March 11, 2020 – Ohio State messaged all travelers on semester and academic year university supported international experiences strongly recommending they return to the United States. The university has offered to work with travelers on university supported experience to defray any unreimbursed costs and explore options for academic credit to complete their education abroad experience.

Although travelers were not obligated to leave their programs to return to the United States, the university referenced the unpredictable environment as rationale for its recommendation. The continuing response by nations and governments, including border closures, entry restrictions, quarantines and curtailment of universities and other public services, could put travelers at risk. As coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads, travelers remaining in their host country may face temporary restrictions on their movement and/or limited access to routine health care.

Additional information on Ohio State’s response to COVID-19 can be found on the Wexner Medical Center website.
