Office of International Programs

We make international education a priority: Rollins College is among the top 12 U.S. institutions of its type for the percentage of students who study abroad!
Please scan down for Covid-19 study abroad updates.

Overview

The Office of International Programs (IP) oversees and coordinates all off-campus international programs and all domestic off-campus, credit-bearing programs for students in the College of Liberal Arts and Holt. This includes our approved semester programs, our faculty-led summer programs, and our faculty-led short-term field studies during the winter, spring, and summer breaks. We also support students traveling internationally through Crummer courses, on unaffiliated programs, and engaging in conferences, research, and competitions abroad.

Covid-19 Updates

Has the College suspended travel to certain locations, or canceled any study abroad programs?

The College has cancelled the following:

  • 2020 Summer Programs and Field Studies through the end of August 2020.
  • The College is not permitting any short-term international travel sponsored by or subsidized by the College through end of August 2020.
  • At this time, fall semester programs are anticipated to be operating normally--the College will make a final decision about whether to cancel programs on July 1.

This is a rapidly evolving situation and we are closely monitoring the situation through a number of channels and consulting regularly with our Travel Risk Committee and other on campus. The position of the College in regards to international programs may change as we continue to assess the potential risks to our students.

What will happen if study abroad programs are cancelled?

The Office of International Programs (IP) will work closely with students should we need to cancel any programs.  All students on cancelled spring and summer 2020 programs remain on track towards graduation. Spring semester students were issued refunds in accordance with College policy and adjusted for program dates. Students on cancelled short-term and summer programs were not charged any cancellation fees.

Fall 2020 programs are anticipated to be operating normally. The College will make a final decision about these programs on July 1.  Students scheduled to participate in fall programs will be registered for courses on-campus in case the programs are cancelled. If programs are cancelled, students will still be able to obtain on-campus housing and will have priority for the new Lakeside residence hall in spring 2021.

If the College cancels a program once abroad, International Programs will work with our insurance company and possibly the US Embassy as well to coordinate an evacuation.  International Programs has emergency plans in place for this event and would follow protocols to get students home as safely and quickly as possible. In both cases, International Programs will cooperate with students, colleagues on campus, and program partners abroad to ensure continued progress to degree completion and to minimize any financial penalties. Please contact us if you have further questions: 407-646-2466.
