Travel Warning Policy

Travel Warning Policy for Study Abroad

Montclair State policy prohibits student, faculty or staff travel on university-affiliated programs in countries where a travel warning is in effect.

Montclair State University will not operate, pay for, supervise, direct, or otherwise support a study abroad program, research program, or other course or program for any students (undergraduate, graduate, professional) in a portion of a country where a Department of State Travel Warning ("Travel Warning") is in effect.

If a student has an application in process or accepted but has not yet departed, the student will be informed that their program has been suspended.  The Study Abroad Office will make every effort to assist the student in making alternative arrangements for the semester.

Students who are already abroad may be required to return to the U.S. if the Department of State issues a warning that applies to country in which they are studying. The University will work with these students, their families, and the programs to decide the best course of action at that time.
