SUSPENSION OF STUDENT TRAVEL DUE TO COVID-19

The health and safety of Macaulay Honors College students, faculty, and staff remains a top concern, which is why student travel remains suspended for Winter and Spring 2022. This suspension includes all study abroad and domestic travel programs operated by Macaulay. Programs from other CUNY campuses or outside organizations cannot be supported for Opportunities Funds, Macaulay tuition waivers, or completion of graduation requirements. This policy will be in effect until further notice.

Our decision is based on several factors:

  • Health risks posed by unpredictable COVID-19 infection rates throughout the world, including delta, and other dangerous variants of the virus.
  • Health risks posed by proximity to others during study abroad experiences such as air travel, public transportation, hotel stays, group dining, and group activities.
  • Challenges presented by fluctuating entry requirements, visa processes, and program cancellations.
  • Adherence to New York State and CUNY travel guidelines.We will re-evaluate this policy as public health and safety improves to determine whether we can consider study abroad/away applications in future semesters.
