Study abroad to South Korea suspended

The Vice Provost and Dean of the International Division has suspended Spring 2020 UW–Madison sponsored study abroad programming in South Korea.

In accordance with UW–Madison international travel policy, this decision was reached due to the CDC raising their warning level to a 3: Avoid Nonessential Travel for South Korea.

UW–Madison had five students enrolled in exchanges in South Korea this Spring semester in exchanges with Yonsei University and Korea University in Seoul. UW–Madison informed all five students and our partners in Korea. Study abroad programming had previously been suspended for China.

UW–Madison will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates on any other program changes.
