Monitoring COVID-19

In accordance with the Study Abroad Restricted Travel Policy, international travel to most locations remains restricted due to COVID-19. Study Abroad is carefully proceeding with increased risk management procedures and with select study abroad opportunities. Students studying through exchange, affiliate, or non-NC State programs will need to anticipate having to complete and submit a petition for final review by NC State’s Study Abroad Emergency Response Team (SAERT) before receiving ultimate approval to study abroad. Details about the petition process, requirements, and deadline will be made available to applicable students during the application process. 

NC State Study Abroad regularly monitors the U.S. Department of State (DOS), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) international travel advisories, the World Health Organization (WHO),  and reports from the Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC). Study Abroad also consults with embassies, consulates, and our overseas partner institutions. 

NC State continues to work closely with the Wake County Health Department and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services to monitor the situation in the campus area and support the health and safety of the university and broader community. 

NC State Study Abroad takes the health and safety of every student participating on a study abroad program very seriously and therefore may cancel a program in order to help ensure students’ safety.
