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... 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.
