OCS COVID-19 Updates & Resource Links

We know that COVID-19 is creating a lot of uncertainty all over the globe, especially in the field of study abroad. For answers and updates, please refer to the following information organized by term.



  • Winter Term Information - Our office is no longer accepting applications for winter term programs. For students who have already applied to  a program, please remain in very close contact with your program to determine whether or not the program will move forward. Students will not be permitted to travel to a U.S. State Department Level 4: Do Not Travel location. It will be important for students and families to consider their personal tolerance for risk and to carefully consider program cancellation and refund policies. Students will pay programs directly, and F&M will not be involved in the billing process. No additional financial aid will be available. If you are interested in a winter term program, please email Dean Ali Janicek.




(As you consider all options and what will work best for you during your college career and beyond, know that undergraduate study abroad is not the only path to an abroad experience. Please note this resource page with myriad ideas on how to go abroad in the future.)
