Frequently Asked Questions: Coronavirus & Study Abroad

Updated June 3, 2020

This situation is rapidly changing and students should regularly monitor the OIE & Study Abroad websites and the university's Coronavirus Information page, as well as read all university emails sent to their Andrew account. 

All students taking online courses from programs/institutions located outside of the U.S. should work with OIE/Study Abroad to complete the Study Abroad Transfer Credit (SATC) process prior to the start of the summer semester. Set up a time to meet with a Study Abroad Advisor via the CMU Study Abroad Portal.
As of now, we are still reviewing the possibility of Fall study abroad as well as instruction in Pittsburgh. Currently, University-sponsored international travel is not allowed.  Additionally, we follow guidelines from the U.S. State Department and CDC, amongst other resources, which currently recommend no international travel. We strongly recommend that students hoping to study abroad in the Fall develop a back-up plan to study at CMU in the fall, in the event that Fall 2020 study abroad is not possible or not permitted.
We are currently assessing this situation.  We realize this may be on a case-by-case basis depending on offerings provided by CMU and your academic needs; as well as safety, health, visas and immigration issues. Please contact a Study Abroad Advisor to discuss your situation further.
