Note for Summer/Fall 2021
SUNY announced the cancellation of all University-sponsored education abroad programs for Summer 2021 on January 28, 2021.
As of August 6, 2020, the U.S. Department of State provides country-specific Travel Advisory levels. As of November 21, 2020, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has also enacted country-specific, COVID-19 Travel Health Notices with a four-level scale focusing specifically on COVID-19 in addition to their standard Travel Health Notices. The IEGI typically operates programs in countries with a U.S. State Department Level 2 and CDC Level 2 (for both COVID-19 and standard Travel Health Notices) or lower. Any elevation in advisory levels indicates a change in condition, prompting us to review the situation, assess impact on our students and staff, and evaluate whether we can maintain our programs.
If you are still considering participating in a non-SUNY program for Summer/Fall 2021, you will want to be in close contact with your academic advisor about earning transfer credit and with the administering campus about any updates to whether the program will indeed run. It is highly important that students planning to participate in a non-Binghamton program complete Binghamton’s online application related to their program.
