Study Abroad Update
The staff at the Center for International Programs are working remotely and are available for virtual advising sessions to our student population.
Connect with your Study Abroad Advisors today:
We are hopeful that things will be back to normal in a few months’ time and we are continuing to monitor the situation, and adjusting appropriately as new information is available.
We recommend the following for students with plans to study abroad in the upcoming fall semester:
- Register for classes and housing at their home institution given the current COVID-19 pandemic
- Develop and discuss their eight-semester academic plans with the Academic Advisors to ensure that study abroad can be part of their college experiences and consider delaying study abroad to spring semester 2021.
- Please pay attention to further emails from us and information coming forth from the Department of State and Embassy in your study abroad country of choice.
We look forward to our continued work together in providing students very positive experiences through traditional cultural exchange as well as distance learning and directed study.
We have been monitoring the situation very carefully in conjunction with SUNY New Paltz Administration, our overseas partners, and SUNY System Administration. When advising students on educational travel, SUNY New Paltz is informed by the recommendations of the U.S. Department of State, the NYS Department of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). At this time, the US Department of State has announced a current advisory Level 4 Travel Advisory applying to international travel for US citizens. A Level 4 Travel Advisory is “do not travel”, the highest and most severe level.
