Students should review the FAQs and can reach out to their college's study abroad office if they have questions.
COVID-19 Study Abroad Student Assessment & Action Plan
The university added an important step to the study abroad application process: the “COVID-19 Study Abroad Student Assessment and Action Plan.” The assessment is available in student applications in My Study Abroad and is due on or before the study abroad application deadline for the term you are applying.
If possible, you should review the assessment prior to your required study abroad advising session to address questions or concerns. If you have already met with your study abroad advisor, you should reach back out if you have questions regarding the questionnaire.
The assessment includes links to partner surveys and other resources in the instructions. These will assist you with the questionnaire. The intent is to inform your understanding of program planning and help you develop response plans for potential disruptions or issues resulting from COVID-19. Your responses will be used with the other requirements you submit to gauge if you are eligible and prepared to study abroad.
