Dear WFU Summer Session II Study Abroad Students,

This email is to let you know that the decision has been made to cancel all remaining WFU-sponsored study abroad programs for Summer 2020. These Summer Session II programs include:

  • WFU/Barcelona: Legal Environment of Business
  • WFU/India: Culture, Communication, & History
  • WFU/London: Introduction to Western Theater (Worrell House)
  • WFU/London: College Chemistry II
  • WFU/Spain, France, and Switzerland: Global Perspectives in Food & Health
  • WFU/St. Vincent & the Grenadines
  • WFU/Vienna: Introduction to Philosophical Ideas

We realize that this will come as disappointing news to many of you, and we share your sadness about the loss of this particular educational opportunity. However, please know that health and safety are our primary concerns, and this decision was made with that in mind. Similarly, it is our hope that this earlier cancellation than initially anticipated will reduce some of the uncertainty you may be feeling about your plans for the summer.

All program deposits made to WFU will be refunded to your student accounts. Similarly, any scholarship funds awarded by GPS will revert back to the University. If you have made any program-related flight arrangements, then contact the airlines directly to make the necessary adjustments to your travel plans.

Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time. We look forward to working with you on future study abroad opportunities. Should you have any questions, please let us know.

David F. Taylor
Assistant Dean for Global Study Away
