Overview

The Office of International Programs (IP) oversees and coordinates all off-campus international programs and all domestic off-campus, credit-bearing programs for students in the College of Liberal Arts and Holt. This includes our approved semester programs, our faculty-led summer programs, and our faculty-led short-term field studies during the winter, spring, and summer breaks. We also support students traveling internationally through Crummer courses, on unaffiliated programs, and engaging in conferences, research, and competitions abroad!

Covid-19 Updates

Has the College suspended travel to certain locations, or canceled any study abroad programs?
The College has cancelled the following:

  • Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 Rollins Approved Semester Programs outside the U.S.
  • Short-term international travel sponsored by or subsidized by the College through the end of December 2020
  • January and March 2021 field studies and Crummer international travel courses in January and February 2021
  • Summer 2021 programs are anticipated to be operating normally at this time - however, the College will review the status of these programs in January.

This is a continually evolving situation and we are closely monitoring the situation through a number of channels and consulting regularly with our Travel Risk Committee and other on campus. The position of the College in regards to international programs may change as we continue to assess the potential risks to our students.

What will happen if study abroad programs are cancelled?
The Office of International Programs (IP) will work closely with students whose programs have been cancelled. We are working with our faculty partners to ensure that students will stay on track towards graduation. We have also developed timelines for College decisions about program cancellations that ensure students do not incur withdrawal fees.

If the College cancels a program once abroad, International Programs will support students as they make arrangements to return home. If an evaucation is mandated, we will work with our insurance company and possibly the US Embassy as well to coordinate an evacuation.  International Programs has emergency plans in place and would follow protocols to get students home as safely and quickly as possible. In any case of program cancellation, International Programs will cooperate with students, colleagues on campus, and program partners abroad to ensure continued progress to degree completion and to minimize any financial penalties.

What if I am in a major that requires a global or field experience?
Students in majors with required global or field experiences who are scheduled to graduate in May 2021 can opt to complete department-defined alternatives to the global or field experience. International Business and Business Management majors can fulfill the requirement by taking INT295 Global Citizenship: No Passport Required: a 1-credit cours that will be offered during intersession and in the spring semester.

What factors is the College considering when make decisions about international travel?
U.S. State Department and CDC travel notices; restrictions on entry to many countries for US citizens; mandated quarantines and other restrictions in place in many countries around the globe; limited international flights; restrictions on entry back into the U.S.; potential risks to the College community and our host communities and partners abroad; and the high-level of continued uncertainty surrounding the virus and the state of international travel.

What if I have more questions?
