Summer 2020 Sessions
The health, safety and well-being of our university community is our top priority. Due to the evolving situation with COVID-19 and numerous international travel restrictions, USC will not offer any learning abroad programs this summer.
Fall 2020 Semester
USC extended the suspension of its study abroad programs through the fall 2020 semester. Given the evolving and unpredictable situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, we made this decision to ensure the health, safety and well-being of our study abroad students, and to provide them with enough time to make alternative plans for the fall semester.
By suspending our fall programs in May, we eliminated the potential challenges that would arise as a result of last-minute program cancellations, unexpected travel restrictions, international housing constraints and more. The study abroad offices across our various schools contacted students who applied to fall 2020 programs and will ensure academic continuity for all impacted students.
