IGS continues to closely monitor the evolution of the novel (new) coronavirus (known as COVID-19). As always, we are following official guidance given by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), University Leadership and the Delaware Division of Public Health, and are communicating regularly with students, faculty, staff and families. Our students’ health and safety are our top priorities.
Due to unprecedented measures to restrict travel and limit the spread of COVID-19, UD has canceled its summer 2020, fall 2020, winter 2021 and spring 2021 study abroad programs.
IGS will continue to carefully monitor official sources when making decisions regarding future education abroad programs. IGS is working closely with our campus and international partners to assess the feasibility of UD Study Abroad programs on a case-by-case basis.
If UD decides to cancel a future study abroad program, we will communicate directly with affected students. In this case, the University of Delaware will reimburse the cost of program fees, tuition and flights (if purchase was advised by IGS). Students who have been accepted to upcoming UD study abroad programs should monitor their UD email daily and sign up for emails in the University's travel alert system, Drum Cussac.
Students on non-UD sponsored study abroad programs should follow recommendations and use resources provided by their host institution and/or program provider.
IGS is making every effort to transition its campus events and services online. For more information, visit the UD Global at Home page.
