COVID-19 and Study Away

At this time, LaGrange College is recommending but no longer requiring students to receive COVID-19 vaccinations and booster shots to study away.  If at any point, the U.S. or a study away destination reinstates COVID-19 vaccination requirements/restrictions for entry, all students and faculty will have to comply with that in order to participate. This is for all study away programs, domestic or international.

Course Cancellation Due to COVID-19
The Global Engagement Risk Management Committee will cancel a course if events in a country or region indicate that the safety, security and health of the students cannot be reasonably mitigated. In the case of COVID-19, Global Engagement and the Risk Management Committee will draw information from the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department of State’s Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the CDC websites as well as reports from partners abroad to inform the decision to cancel a faculty-led study away course.  
Official notification of the course cancellation will be made by the Office of Global Engagement by email. Refunds to students will depend on when the course is cancelled and the amount of funds paid to program providers.

Please refer to the State Department and the embassy of your destination to monitor any entry requirements.
