In fall 2021, UC’s student travel policy was lifted, but with firm restrictions.
Individual student travel was possible by petition. Despite the stringent guidelines, participation returned heartily for exchange and external provider programs. Co-op and internship participation abroad only reached about half of its pre-pandemic level.
Faculty-led programs could travel to locations with a U.S. Department of State warning under level 4, beginning with winter break programs. Only 3 programs, all of which had run prior to the pandemic, were able to successfully meet the criteria to take student groups abroad.
