Study abroad updates regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus )

NEW: Cancellation of Winter Break 2021 Study Abroad Programs
Updated: Friday, July 24, 2020

Due to the continued risks associated with traveling abroad during the worldwide outbreak of COVID-19, VCU has made the difficult decision to cancel all study abroad programs for Winter Break 2021. This decision was also made in light of the U.S. Department of State's current Level 4 (Do Not Travel) global health advisory level. This cancellation applies to all program types (exchange, direct enroll, provider programs) for the Winter Break 2021 term.
