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.

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 (e.g. study abroad program fees, airfare, quarantine expenses for forced quarantine due to positive COVID test). Under the Pace-provided international emergency insurance, the cost of COVID testing is not covered if considered preventative, routine, or elective. It is only covered if ordered by a doctor as part of course of treatment experiencing COVID symptoms. But no insurance will cover the threat or fear of COVID to trigger evacuation, cancellation, or trip interruption benefits.
