Spring 2020 Study Abroad Update


A note from International Programs confirming that Dean Sternberg’s message about CR/NCR will apply to all study abroad courses including those for major, minor and core.

Dear Global Tigers and families:

I am writing to confirm that Dean Sternberg's message about CR/NCR will apply to all study abroad courses including those for major, minor and core. You choose which abroad grades you want to show on your Oxy transcript!

Many of you have posed excellent questions about finances, especially wondering if the room and board and travel refunds will apply to semester abroad students. I am sorry I do not yet have an answer on that. Once everyone is back safely, we will gather information across the forty-nine different programs to develop equitable and fair solutions. Considerations will include but not be limited to factors such as the amount of IPO stipend remaining at the time of cancellation, the total pool of refunds from providers, etc. It may be some time before a solution is reached.

Thank you for your patience as we focus our efforts on ensuring that all students are safely returned from their programs and have confirmed plans for completing their credits.

Sincerely,

Robin Craggs
Executive Director, International Programs
