Passport Alert: Students who are planning to study abroad in Spring 2022 should review their passport expiration date immediately. Education Abroad participants must have a passport expiration date at least 6 months past their program end date. For many programs, students will need a current passport (that expires more than 6 months past their program end date) to also apply for a student visa. Currently the U.S. Department of State is experiencing long delays in new and renewal passport applications, estimating the process could take up to 18 weeks. If you need to apply for or to renew your passport, you need to do so as soon as possible to ensure you are able to apply for a student visa (if applicable) and participate in your program.
