Guideline on Student or Other Participant International Travel or Study Abroad

In an effort to foster the health, safety and security of its students and other participants, the University of Missouri reviews how, when and where students may travel or 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 advisory level 3 (reconsider travel) or 4 (do not travel) for a particular country or region, travel or study abroad programs may be suspended or canceled for our students of any nationality in that site while the advisory is in effect. Each campus administration should formally review travel advisories for countries or regions with current or proposed travel or study abroad programs to determine if program suspension or cancelation is warranted. If a student or participant chooses to study in one of these countries or regions 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 or regions for which the U.S. Department of State have issued travel advisories level 3 or 4 without a review of whether or not the advisory impacts the risks associated with the programs.
