Common topics relevant to families:
Health & Safety
Prior to going abroad, students and their families should access the potential health and safety risks that may come with study or travel abroad. Please see the Health and Safety page for more information. Families should contact their student's study abroad program to learn about the safety protocols currently in place for that program. Additionally, the U.S. State Department has valuable country-specific information at http://travel.state.gov.
Your student is responsible for ensuring he/she has all the proper documentation needed to travel to and stay in his or her host country as a student. Their study abroad program will be one of the most helpful sources of information on exactly what is required. Please encourage them to begin the application process early. More information is available at http://travel.state.gov.
