A Message regarding COVID-19 and Harvard-related travel:

Harvard College is committed to the health, safety, and wellbeing of our students, wherever your intellectual pursuits may lead you. As always, undergraduate students and post-baccalaureate fellows traveling abroad with Harvard sponsorship must adhere to the College’s international travel policy, which sets forth certain conditions and restrictions for travel to elevated-risk and high-risk destinations. Additionally, and in light of the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, the College will adhere to all travel directives from the Office of the Provost when awarding travel grants. The COVID-19 outbreak is evolving daily, and we simply cannot predict what may occur in the next few weeks and months. Government agencies as well as Harvard may impose new requirements if warranted by changing public health circumstances. No funding will be awarded for travel to any destination under Provostial restriction, and Harvard may rescind sponsorship of previously-approved planned travel if warranted prior to your departure. We recognize the uncertainty of the situation and we encourage you to be as flexible as possible with your spring and summer travel. As needed, the Harvard College office or center awarding funding will work with affected students to determine possible alternative plans. Review the COVID-19 travel advice.

Welcome to the Office of International Education
The Office of International Education (OIE) works with undergraduate students who are planning for a significant academic year, term, or summer international experience. We work with students to research and plan for their time abroad, provide support during their international experience, and ensure that their re-entry process goes smoothly. We are guided by the academic standards of Harvard College, and work in close collaboration with various academic departments, area centers, and other advising offices on campus.

To learn more about how Harvard is engaged with the rest of the world, please visit Harvard Worldwide, a website maintained by the Office of the Vice Provost for International Affairs.
