Study Away and COVID-19

During the COVID-19 pandemic, participation in study away and abroad involves real and potential personal, financial, and academic risk. The CDC advises that you should delay travel until you are vaccinated. Note that entry to some countries and participation in local program and free-time activities, including in the U.S., may be severely restricted or potentially unavailable to unvaccinated individuals. Unvaccinated travelers should additionally expect to incur extra expenses and onsite logistical challenges due to onsite testing requirements.

How do I apply?

Prior to applying directly to the program through CIS Abroad, the Office of Global Opportunities recommends that all students complete mandatory OHIO paperwork for transfer credit programs. This paperwork is called the Foreign Study Checklist (FSC). By completing the FSC first, students will have a better sense of how the CIS Abroad program will affect their progress towards degree completion and their financial aid. 

Please review the suggested application steps on the types of programs - affiliated provider program page.
