Georgia College Safety Statement for Education Abroad
Safety considerations are a key component of each education abroad program. Georgia College adheres to the professional standards of safety and risk management in education abroad. Georgia College is a member of the Forum for Education Abroad, which sets the national standard of good practices. The International Education Center implements the Forum’s Standard 8 on safety abroad and risk assessment. In addition, the International Education Center monitors world events through a variety of government-based resources, including the Overseas Security and Advisory Council (OSAC), the U.S. Department of State, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and other foreign-based resources, including but not limited to: the British Foreign Service and Commonwealth Office and the Canadian Foreign Travel Advice websites.
The International Education Center remains vigilant in its pursuit of safety and security as our students travel abroad. We will continue to monitor and distribute any information and advice from the US State Department, the Center for Disease Control, the University System of Georgia, and our in-country partners. At this time, no changes have been made to any Georgia College study abroad operations. In the event that changes become necessary, we will reach out to all students directly impacted and will pursue all options available for alternative program measures and, if cancellation becomes necessary, we will do our best to secure refunds.
For more information on your study destination and the coronavirus, we encourage you to visit the US State Department’s travel advice and the CDC.

“The opportunity to study abroad can be a life changing experience. Not only are students challenged to engage with other people and learn about their cultures, languages and customs – but traveling to other countries allows students to develop skills that will enhance their future employment prospects and enrich their lives. Studying abroad can be a fulfilling part of a well-rounded liberal arts degree and I am hopeful that all Georgia College students will give serious thought to engaging in the opportunity to study abroad at some point in their university experience. So, get your passport and start planning for your opportunity to study abroad!”
– Dr. Steve Dorman, President of Georgia College
