We stand together with schools and students in Texas affected by the recent devastating hurricane and tropical storm, Harvey, and will support them in every way possible. Any students whose travel has been delayed due to the storm, or any schools with students delayed, should call 800.995.2300 during office hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday), or please call 800.766.7793 outside of office hours.

Our U.S. and global staff will work with students whose travel plans are affected by Harvey in order to help facilitate their safe arrival in their host country.

We have notified our Center staff that some students’ arrival on site may be delayed due to the storm. Our Center staff will accommodate late arrivals for students affected by the storm, with a goal of making sure they have everything they need for a successful start to their study abroad experience.

Our Center staff is also providing and offering support to students who are on site, and who may have family and friends in the affected areas.
