Due to COVID-19, all CUNY Study Abroad programs have been suspended for the summer and fall semesters of 2021. We are hopeful that we can commence with international travel soon, so we are focusing on resuming travel for the summer semester of 2022.

The programs listed under the Upcoming Programs tab have already been approved, so these will be our priorities for summer 2022 provided they meet all of the CUNY Guidelines as well as CDCs Travel Guideline Warnings.

The Study Abroad Office will keep you apprised of all changes to our programs as they occur.  If you need more information, please contact Rachelle Taylor, Study Abroad Academic Program Manager at rachellet@mec.cuny.edu.
