International Students and Study Abroad

Under normal circumstances, Maricopa Community Colleges offers diverse learning experiences through its study abroad programs, allowing students to discover other cultures and gain new insight on the importance of fostering global connections.

However, we are committed to providing the best learning experience possible while keeping the health and safety of its students and employees top of mind. In the ongoing effort to protect students against the continued spread of COVID-19, Maricopa has suspended all nonessential travel (and business trips) through January 15, 2021.

Per the Travel Administrative Regulation, if travel arrangements need to be cancelled outside of the traveler’s control, the traveler must first seek refunds for any costs paid and Maricopa will cover the transactions that cannot be refunded. If a traveler decides to cancel scheduled travel activities due to status changes of COVID-19, refunds must first be sought and Maricopa will cover the cost of items that cannot be refunded.
