As of this writing, Tulane is permitting undergraduates to study abroad during Fall 2021. However, this decision is subject to change if travel health and safety conditions deteriorate in the U.S. or in your host country due to COVID-19. The Newcomb-Tulane College Office of Study Abroad, in coordination with the Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response, Campus Health, and the Office of the Provost, is actively monitoring the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation worldwide and making evidence-informed decisions to better assure students’ health and well-being. Tulane will continue to monitor international travel advisories and guidance issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, the U.S. Department of State, and our international collaborators with respect to the health and safety of our study abroad programs. Information regarding COVID-19 also will be addressed during pre-departure and on-site orientation. Students must understand that Fall 2021 study abroad cannot be compared to pre-pandemic experiences. COVID-mitigation measures will still be required and program modifications, interruptions, and/or cancellations are still possible, often with little to no prior warning.

Tulane's Office of Study Abroad facilitates the pursuit of academic exchange and study abroad for the Tulane undergraduate community. Through the close curation of a list of academic programs that meet the academic and personal needs of Tulane students and one-on-one and group advising, the OSA sends approximately 600* Tulane students abroad each year. (*pre-COVID)
Working with other offices in the Center for Global Education, the OSA also conducts educational and informational programming to foster relationships between globally-minded community members and to enrich the sense of "the international" of Tulane's New Orleans campus.
We believe that assisting students in the articulation of their personal and academic goals for study abroad and the pursuit of these goals will help them acquire region and country-specific knowledge, empathize with differing ways of being in the world, and apply these newfound skills in their future endeavors.
