Health & Safety Updates

The University of Maryland Education Abroad Risk Management Committee will provide guidance to Education Abroad for students studying abroad in countries with travel alerts or travel warnings issued by the US Department of State. Each situation will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and Education Abroad will be in direct contact with students and emergency contacts to relay essential information about emerging situations and safety recommendations.

All students and parents are advised to review the Health and Safety section of our website.
