Special Circumstances

Per the policy on Department of State travel advisories for level 3 and level 4 countries, the University of Richmond does not permit students to use University funds to travel to countries designated as a level 4. Students planning to travel to countries (or regions within a country) with an advisory level 3 are required to submit a petition and receive approval from the Office of International Education prior to departure. If a country’s travel level changes from 3 to 4 while students are abroad, the University will review the situation to determine the appropriate action, which may include immediate mandatory departure.

Students with Disciplinary Issues

Students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing with the university to study abroad.  Students on conduct probation will not be able to study abroad if they are on conduct probation that does not expire prior to the start date of the semester abroad program.

Students with Disabilities

The University of Richmond is committed to assisting students with physical and learning disabilities so that they are able to study abroad. The University will make every effort to develop reasonable accommodations in cooperation with the host institution so that students with learning or physical disabilities may achieve the intended goals of the study abroad experience.

The University of Richmond prohibits discrimination and harassment against applicants, students, faculty or staff on the basis of race, religion, national or ethnic origin, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, status as a veteran or any classification protected by local, state or federal law.
