Student exploring his surroundings while studying abroad.


For semester abroad programs, flight arrangements are the responsibility of the student. If a group flight is recommended, it will be communicated to students by Education Abroad.

For faculty-led study abroad programs, a suggested flight routing option will be provided in accordance with the program dates.

Know your rights with delayed or cancelled flights!

The U.S. Department of Transportation states that passengers will be entitled to a refund if their flight is canceled or significantly changed, and they do not accept alternative transportation or travel credits offered. The rule defines “significant change” to a flight as departure or arrival times that are delayed more than 3 hours domestically and 6 hours internationally (effective April 2024).

Trip Cancellation/Interruption Insurance

For all study abroad programs, Pace recommends that you purchase trip cancellation and/or interruption insurance (known as CFAR/IFAR)... just in case. Such insurance plans can provide financial protection in the event that a student must unexpectedly cancel or interrupt their study abroad program and related travels; having it may prevent unforeseen circumstances from presenting a substantial financial loss for students who must later withdraw from a program to which they are committed. We recommend the students purchase Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) insurance for any prepaid, non-refundable trip costs.
