Spring 2022 Update

The university is evaluating the resumption of study abroad for the Spring 2022 semester. The university recognizes the invaluable role study abroad plays in your academic experience and is doing everything we can to resume study abroad in a safe manner. Review the latest information.

Summer and Fall 2021

The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign made the difficult decision to extend the suspension of outbound study abroad through December 2021. This decision applies to all program types (outbound exchange, direct enroll, provider programs, faculty-led, and study abroad by petition). Students that applied for Fall 2021 have been notified of this decision.

The university will not permit any waivers or exceptions for Summer and Fall 2021 study abroad. Participants choosing to study abroad will have no university connection or support, including access to study abroad options through the university, international insurance, and pre-articulation of course credit. University staff will be unable to approve/sign applications for independent programs.
