UGA does not operate faculty-led study abroad programs, reciprocal exchanges, independent research, nor internship programs in countries under a Travel Warning issued by the U.S. Department of State. Generally, independent study, research, or internships for UGA resident credit in Travel Warning countries is not permitted for undergraduates. Petitions by graduate students or by faculty sponsors (for undergraduate students) may be made to the Study Abroad Risk Advisory Committee for an exception as above; however, as the Risk Advisory Committee recognizes that students are traveling independently and unaccompanied represents a further increase in risk, exceptions for student travel to Travel Warning locations cannot be guaranteed.
The Study Abroad Risk Advisory Committee cannot sanction UGA direct credit-bearing international activities for undergraduate students in Travel Warning locations.
