UNCW Suspends Educational Programs in Italy

Saturday, February 29, 2020

In consultation with health authorities and our international program providers, UNCW is closely monitoring all updates pertaining to COVID-19 (coronavirus), and examining the potential immediate impacts for our students abroad as well as the potential long-term impacts for our campus and community.

This is an evolving situation with a lot of moving parts, but we wanted to inform you right away that we have now suspended our education-abroad experience in Italy. We have been in touch with affected students regarding next steps for initiating travel home, and have promised them an update as soon as possible about refunds, academic credit, and so forth.

We will convey all relevant community updates via campus email next week (and our homepage and social media channels for now), and we appreciate your patience as we consider these important decisions. In the meantime, this site includes a number of valuable, reliable resources for your consultation:
