Guideline on Study Abroad in Sites Under State Department Travel Warnings
In an effort to ensure the health, safety and security of its students and constituents, the University of Missouri reviews how, when and where students may study abroad and considers issues of terrorism, war, disease and other risks to travelers. Accordingly, the universities observe the following practice: if the U.S. Department of State issues a travel warning for a particular country, study abroad programs may be suspended or canceled for our students of any nationality in that site while the Warning is in effect. Each campus administration should formally review travel warnings for countries with current or proposed study abroad programs to determine if program suspension or cancelation is warranted. If a student or constituent chooses to study in one of these countries against the advice of the university, he/she will not be registered as a student and will not have access to university support, resources or facilities during that time.
The University of Missouri does not support study abroad programs to countries for which the U.S. Department of State have issued travel warnings without a review of whether or not the warning impacts the risks associated with the programs.
