Summer 2021 International Travel Restrictions
The Smith College policy on U.S. State Department Travel Advisories limits any college-sponsored travel, curricular activity, or extracurricular project in a country in which the U.S. State Department has issued a Level 3 or Level 4 Travel Advisory. College-sponsored travel includes funding, pre-approval of academic credit, internships, or group travel such as field trips and team or club travel.
Due to the global pandemic and uncertainty around changing COVID-19 transmission factors, including new variants and potential closure of borders, the college will not be issuing exceptions for the support of international travel or related projects during the summer of 2021. Virtual and remote-participation in courses or extra-curricular activity is not affected by this policy. The Lewis Global Studies Center will not be considering appeals for exceptions to this policy.
