UMD: A Globally Connected University

Spring 2021 Study Abroad Update

Spring 2021 Study Abroad Update

The university continues to actively monitor the novel Coronavirus (“COVID-19”) outbreak in this country and around the world along with its impact on global travel. We have designed a roadmap for reopening our programs that prioritize the health and safety of our students and faculty. Unfortunately, many of the conditions for reopening have not yet been met, and there continue to be restrictions on U.S. citizens where most of our programs operate. We are staying up to date on the latest guidance from the U.S. Department of State and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and proactively  implementing measures to keep our community safe as we consider international education opportunities for future terms. In recognition of these circumstances, we have decided to cancel all in-person study abroad programs for the Spring 2021 semester.

Stay Global UMD

Now more than ever, we need folks actively involved in solving problems that transcend borders. We are committed to your ongoing international education, in whatever form it takes, to prepare you for an increasingly connected world that requires culturally competent professionals to confront global challenges. We continue to add global learning resources and opportunities here:
