UPDATE ON STUDY ABROAD
Because of the continuing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, Baruch College has extended the suspension of study abroad through the fall 2021 semester. We are closely monitoring the situation, and hope that we will be able to resume in-person study abroad for the 2022 January Intersession and the 2022 Spring Semester.
We are awaiting approval from New York State of the CUNY Plan to Relaunch Study Abroad. Because study abroad in January and the spring semester 2022 is not yet certain, we are following a “twin-track” approach for the study abroad application cycle for January and spring 2022.
Track 1: Applications to Study Abroad
You should apply to study abroad for January and spring 2022 as you normally would (i.e. without COVID). We will process your applications, schedule interviews for exchange programs, give provisional approval of applications, and make provisional nominations for our exchanges. Final approval will be given once study abroad to your destination has been approved. However, we strongly recommend that you NOT make any non-refundable payments until we notify you that your study abroad has been given final approval.
Track 2: Registration at Baruch for Spring 2022
We do not know when we might obtain final approval for study abroad programs. Therefore, if you have not been notified about the status of your study abroad program by the date of your spring 2022 registration appointment, you should register for courses at Baruch as you would if you were not planning to study abroad.
The Baruch Study Abroad Office is offering Study Abroad Virtual Information Sessions on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays for those who wish to receive an overview of opportunities for study abroad.
If you have already attended a Study Abroad Information Session, you can schedule an In-person or Virtual Study Abroad Advising Session during our new Drop-in hours.
Global learning, or a phrase like it, has become one of the most pervasive watchwords in higher education today. And for good reason: in today’s world of deeply intertwined global relationships, the ability to move easily within and between cultures is becoming not only an increasingly prized qualification for jobs in any number of fields, but has become an indispensable component of a college education in the twenty-first century.
The Baruch College Study Abroad Office is here to help students from all three Baruch Schools who wish to study abroad attain their educational and cultural learning goals. We help them choose their study abroad destination wisely, fit their study abroad experience into their overall college education, and guide them throughout the process of applying to study abroad.
The Study Abroad Office also assists Baruch faculty in developing study abroad programs.
As part of the Weissman Center for International Business, the Study Abroad Office has been promoting the aims of global education at Baruch for nearly two decades. We look forward to continuing to help the entire Baruch College community achieve these important aims both today and in the future.
When planning your study abroad experience, please keep in mind the deadlines for submitting your Baruch Application to Study Abroad:
|October 1||For programs during the January Intersession or Spring Semester*|
|March 15||For programs during the Summer Session, Fall Semester * or Academic Year|
*Some Baruch exchange programs may have earlier application deadlines. Please check with the Study Abroad Office to find out if your preferred exchange program has an earlier application deadline.
