Study Abroad

Students and employees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to participate in any faculty/staff led study abroad program (or Alternative Break trips). Medical or religious exemptions will not be accepted. The College will assess international experiences against the CDC’s Travel Recommendations by Destination. The CDC identified Level 4 countries, which advise travelers to avoid those destinations, will not be approved for college-sponsored travel. The College will consider travel to Level 3 countries on a case by case basis but non-essential travel to these countries should be avoided.

Students who are not vaccinated or receive a medical or religious exemption may participate in a third-party provider program coordinated by the Roukema Center for International Education, only if there are no vaccine requirements established by the provider or host institution or as per travel/destination country restrictions.

Definition Of Being Fully Vaccinated

In general, people are considered fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine
