COVID-19 has led to two immediate changes. First, the application deadlines for Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 have been separated. Both windows normally close on February 15; this year, the Fall 2021 deadline is being moved to March 15. The deadlines are being separated to allow staff more time to focus initially on summer applications.
Second, the university will require students to complete the Summer 2021 Study Abroad Petition before being fully accepted into any program. The petition will ask you to answer program-specific questions as well as demonstrate your plan and readiness to respond to specific COVID-19 situations. More information will be forthcoming in early March 2021.
