Updated Covid-19 Vaccination Requirement

As of January 2022, Syracuse Abroad is unable to accommodate Covid-19 Vaccination and/or booster Exemptions. All students studying with our programs must be fully vaccinated, and, if eligible, must also receive a booster dose and provide proof of inoculation prior to a published deadline for each program. This is in effect for spring, summer and fall 2022 programs.

In general, international governments have constraints on those unvaccinated such that robust participation in a study abroad program is not possible. The experience would be so compromised as to not meet the high standards of a Syracuse Abroad experience.

Students with questions about this should reach out to their International Program Advisor.

Covid-19 Booster Requirement for 2022 programs

Syracuse University announced (COVID-19 Update: Booster Shot Requirement) that beginning with the spring 2022 semester, all students who are eligible to receive a Covid-19 booster must receive one before the beginning of the spring term.  This requirement also applies to students studying abroad.  If eligible (COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Shots | CDC), all students must receive a booster before departing their home country for their study abroad destination.

Syracuse University students must upload an image of your updated Covid-19 vaccine card to your Barnes Center Patient Portal. You will receive an email from the Barnes Center with additional information related to how and when to upload your documentation.

Visiting students should navigate to the “Online Applications Checklist” section of your OrangeAbroad account and upload an image of your updated Covid-19 card to the “Covid-19 Booster documentation upload” checklist item in your account.

Please contact Syracuse Abroad by email at suabroad@syr.edu or by phone at 315-443-3471 with any questions.

Joining Global Conversations

Our Syracuse Abroad Center program in Strasbourg, France, gives students a voice in shaping international policies.

When Lauren Romero G’21, Jen Proch G’21 and Anna Marie Andrews G’21 chose to study international relations at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, they were especially interested in the international internships integral to the curriculum. And despite being in the cohort whose graduate programs were largely remote because of COVID-19, each succeeded in obtaining a prestigious internship with the Council of Europe.
