The University continues to carefully monitor the COVID-19 pandemic globally and is continuing the gradual restart of global experiences.

Explore this list of tentative programs that are approved for spring 2022:

Program Evaluation 

The review and selection process to approve programs was thorough and based on several factors including but not limited to: host country border restrictions, host program’s on-site student support, healthcare availability, CDC COVID-19 risk levels, vaccination mandates, quarantine/travel requirements and, the financial risk to both students and the institution; should a program be canceled or students recalled home due to health and safety risks. 

The list of programs that have been approved has met CEA’s high standards mentioned above at the time of their review.  All programs will continue to be monitored throughout the application process and leading up to dates of departure. 

If a program has significant changes (e.g. host country closes border to U.S. flights or program is canceled by the host institution), CEA may need to cancel a previously approved program.  If a program is canceled, you will be contacted immediately. 

As you consider applying to one of the above programs, please keep in mind the following: 

  • If this is not your final opportunity to go abroad during your academic program, consider waiting for a future term when there may be more open programs and fewer restrictions due to the pandemic. 
  • Choose airlines and flights that have change fee waivers or travel insurance should your plans unexpectedly change. 
  • Research your destination of interest to better understand what day-to-day life may be like as pandemic restrictions continue in many countries. 
  • Students applying to a Non-Rochester program should meet with a CEA Advisor before applying. Non-Rochester programs must be reviewed for approval, it is recommended that you have at least 1 alternate choice from the approved program list.

Vaccination Requirement

As with all undergraduate and graduate students on campus, all study abroad students are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to departure or have an approved religious or medical exemption. This requirement is to ensure the safest possible experience abroad as many locations, including the U.S. and much of Europe, continue to fight the spread of COVID-19.  You can review the full vaccination requirement policy here.

You can contact UHS or the Center for Education Abroad if you have questions regarding the submission of your proof of COVID-19 vaccination.

While there are many factors to consider, we are thrilled to be able to once again accept applications for in-person international experiences! Thank you for your ongoing patience as CEA and the University have worked to ensure the safest and rewarding program opportunities for both your personal and academic goals.
