Study Abroad Programs

USC extended the suspension of its study abroad programs, inbound and outbound, through the spring 2021 semester. Given the evolving and unpredictable situation with the COVID-19 pandemic and an increasing number of cancellations of programs by study abroad partners, we made this decision to ensure the health, safety and well-being of our students, and to provide them with enough time to make alternative plans for the spring semester. 
By suspending our spring programs in September, we eliminate the potential challenges that would arise as a result of last-minute program cancellations, unexpected travel restrictions, international housing constraints and more. 
This decision does not include Maymester programs, which will be assessed at a later date.
