International Study

The Office for International Study continues to monitor closely events around the world with particular attention to the locations of our Smith JYA programs. At this time, all programs are continuing with their regular schedule but with added safety precautions and restricted group and independent student travel. Our faculty directors overseas have made available counseling services for our students who are finding this a difficult time. We are encouraging students to maintain regular, if not daily, contact with their families to assure them of their welfare.

Evacuation of students on our JYA programs has not been necessary in 60 years. The only conditions under which we would attempt such a procedure would be if evacuation were requested by either the U.S. Embassy or the State Department. This action should be considered as a last resort. At such time, the Office would advise the faculty directors and students accordingly and notify families. Updates as needed will be posted here.

For information about specific countries, consult U.S. State Department advisories or the U.S. embassies worldwide page.
