Resources and Policies

In This Section

Pace Education Abroad prioritizes the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff. Studying and traveling abroad requires many of the same health and safety precautions that one would take in the U.S.A. However, participants need to be aware of additional risks that may be unique to traveling abroad and living in a particular country or region.

Pace Education Abroad monitors international security and maintains regular communication with in-country faculty leaders, partner institutions, and program providers. In the event of an emergency, Pace will work swiftly to identify the location of program participants and immediately initiate communication with the necessary parties, taking action as the situation warrants.

From getting your passport to packing, the information on this page will assist you in preparing for your adventure abroad!

Pace Abroad recognizes and supports a diverse student population on its study abroad programs. Matters of personal identity can impact all students on a study abroad program. For some, it may be the first time you are a minority in your community. For others, you might notice you are getting attention based on your identity either in a positive or negative way. It is important to remember that you have control over your response to these situations.

Pace offers study abroad programs with different financial models and duration. Pace is committed to high academic standards, and your student will work with a Study Abroad Advisor in tandem with their Pace Academic Advisor to ensure that their study abroad program is the right fit personally and academically. We work with students to ensure that individual needs and concerns are addressed–before, during, and after their study abroad experience. Finally, we offer parents and families an opportunity to attend a dedicated Parent & Family Study Abroad Pre-departure Session (hosted virtually by Pace Education Abroad twice yearly), so that they can better understand how their students should prepare for study abroad and how best to support their students going abroad.

Pace University provides qualified students the option to study in a variety of approved international destinations during their degree. This opportunity is extended to qualified Pace students in all academic majors, subject to availability of existing programs and resources, and with approval of their academic unit. All Pace-sanctioned study abroad endeavors – including study, spring break, and/or any other international programs representing Pace University (with the exception of Athletics) – must adhere to these policies and procedures.
