In a March 19 email sent to students planning to study abroad in the summer, Associate Dean of International and Summer Programs Sarah Gouzoules announced that all University-sponsored travel has been suspended, including Summer 2020 study abroad programs.

“We hope that by making this decision now to cancel Summer 2020 study abroad programs, you will have more time to reassess your academic plan,” the email reads. 

The cancellation extends a previous University decision to cancel all on-site Spring 2020 study abroad programs. 

The email also stated that all students would be refunded their $350 deposit and $75 application fee.

Acknowledging that students’ “course planning may be impacted by this decision,” Gouzoules wrote that students should make alternate plans through Emory online courses.
