Cancellation of Study-Away Programs for Winter, Spring 2021

Out of an abundance of caution and in careful consideration of the health of all members of our community, SUNY System Administration has canceled all university-sponsored student travel programs, including all study-abroad and National Student Exchange, for the upcoming winter and spring terms. We remain optimistic that these necessary restrictions may be rolled back for summer 2021, and will pass along any news as we receive it.

In the meantime, the International Education Office remains committed to the Buffalo State community’s international and intercultural enrichment and development, and welcomes students to explore a host of on-campus and SUNY-wide virtual programming options by accessing our website or by attending one of the following information sessions through Blackboard Collaborate:

Thursday, October 22, 12:30 p.m.

Tuesday, October 27, 12:30 p.m.

Thursday, November 12, 12:30 p.m.

Monday, November 23, 2:00 p.m.

A virtual Study-Away Fair will be held Tuesday, November 17, at 12:30 p.m. More information and the meeting link will be posted soon. 

Faculty members are encouraged to contact the office to discuss the planning process for future study-abroad programs and to explore the Faculty-Led Program Handbook (PDF, 552 KB) on the Study Away website. Additional resources for implementing cultural programming in the COVID era can be found on the SUNY COIL Center website.
