Here you will find the latest information about the status of Northeastern’s global experiential learning programs.

Will I be able to study abroad or do a global co-op in fall 2020?

Effective July 1, Northeastern lifted its suspension on non-essential university travel, which includes co-op and study abroad. Students who would like to travel across international borders must obtain the approval of the office overseeing the university-sponsored program (GEO, co-op, etc.) and must complete the Individual Petition for Student International Travel. This includes both the acknowledgement of risk form and a petition, which must be approved by the Global Safety and Security Assessment Committee

Please note that Northeastern’s suspension on non-essential university travel is a temporary policy, and Northeastern will make an announcement by August 15 regarding whether the temporary policy will be continued, adjusted, or discontinued. Please contact for advice and guidance.
