Important Information About New Policy on International Travel

Oct. 6, 2011

On April 29, 2011, the General Faculty Council unanimously approved a new travel policy. This policy establishes regulations regarding the restriction of travel by students for academic and winter term credit to countries for which the United States Department of State has issued a Travel Warning.

Students will not be permitted to earn academic credit or winter term credit for work done in such countries unless they have successfully petitioned for a waiver of this restriction.

The deadline to petition for this waiver for International Winter Term Projects is October 21, 2011.

To review the full policy document and instructions to apply for a waiver, please visit oberlin.edu/winterterm or oberlin.edu/studyaway.
