Assisting students in staying safe while studying abroad is a top priority for our staff. The UA Education Abroad office has emergency policies and procedures that are continuously reviewed and updated for all approved programs. We work proactively to provide students with access to information about health and safety prior to their departure and while they are abroad.
We monitor the world situation daily through available channels:
- U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs
- Overseas Security Advisory Council
- World Health Organization
We convey such information to our students when necessary. Other resource websites to explore before leaving on a study abroad program include:
Within our application, students will be asked about emergency contact information. Please make sure to keep this up to date so that we can quickly get in contact with the appropriate parties. Those listed should be aware that they are listed and should be given our information prior to the student going abroad.
