U.S. Department of State

The U.S. Department of State maintains a website for U.S. students who are, or will be, studying abroad.  The website contains very helpful information for both students and families regarding safety, emergency situations, and assistance programs for U.S. citizens abroad.  We highly recommend that students visit the Department of State website prior to departing for their overseas program. 

Here are a few things to look for on the website:

Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP)

Country-specific conditions as well as travel warnings

Emergency Information
