IES Abroad’s Crisis Management Team is still actively and closely monitoring the ongoing impact of COVID-19. Communications are being sent regularly to students, their home colleges or universities, and parents, as needed.

The safety of our students and staff abroad is always our first priority, and we will also continue to update this page with relevant high-level information. Learn more about our health and safety protocols and see updates for Study Abroad Foundation (SAF).

Please call 800.995.2300 or 312.944.1750 to speak with someone if you have any questions.
