COVID-19 Information


The Study Abroad Center has been monitoring the situation around COVID-19, and our first priority is the health and safety of our students and faculty. We are working with our partners overseas to offer Study Abroad programs during the 2020-21 and 2021-22 academic years.


New SAC Policy effective Summer 2021:

Participation in a Study Abroad program is voluntary.  Thus, as a requirement of your participation in a Study Abroad Program you will need to provide the UHM Study Abroad Center with a proof of your COVID-19 Vaccination. Effective Summer 2021.  Exemptions will only be made for those participants who are unable to get the vaccine due to health reasons certified by a physician.  However, be aware that the destination country may not accept the exemption.

Summer 2021: Shanghai, China; Mendoza, Argentina; and Lille, France have been cancelled, and the students were given options to participate in other SAC programs.

Fall 2021: Adelaide, Australia and Shanghai, China have been cancelled. All other programs are continuing.

Spring 2022: Application deadline is Oct. 1 for Kobe, Japan and Oct. 15 for all other programs.

The Study Abroad Center is working remotely until further notice. If you need to contact us, please email or visit our contacts page.
