March 11, 2020


This evening, President Trump announced that the U.S. is suspending all travel between the U.S. and Europe for 30 days beginning at midnight Friday, March 13, in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. According to his statement, “These restrictions will be adjusted subject to conditions on the ground. There will be exemptions for Americans who have undergone appropriate screenings.” Additionally, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued a level 3 travel warning for Europe, and the Department of State has issued a global level 3 health advisory.

In light of this unprecedented action and based on the MU student international travel policy, the University of Missouri is canceling all study abroad programs for spring 2020.

We have notified the MU students currently studying abroad and and will work with them individually to find the option that best meets their needs.
