Study Abroad

On August 8, 2020, both the Center for Disease Control and U.S. Department of State adjusted their respective travel notifications. Each agency has effectively transitioned away from issuing a global travel notification, and has now returned to individual country risk assessments. At this time, TWU is still restricting all non-essential university travel - both domestic and international - until further notice.

Education Abroad is continuing to support the TWU community in planning for education abroad activities. However, the timeline in which travel can resume is uncertain. It is the responsibility of each traveler to be keenly aware of refund policies to any organizations supporting future travel plans, including, but not limited to, hotels/hostels, airlines, and education abroad program providers. Email educationabroad@twu.edu if you need further clarification or guidance.

Students in good standing with the Terry Foundation may request an additional stipend of $5,000 towards a study abroad experience. All requests must be submitted to the Terry Foundation for stipend approval.
