Faculty-led: Summer

Texas A&M University has approved, with some possible exceptions, faculty-led programs traveling from May 2021 through August 2021 that exceed four weeks in duration. Approval is contingent on COVID-19 specific mandates or restrictions in the host country, re-entry requirements, and an additional review and approval by OREC. This approval includes the Spain Business and Spain Entrepreneurship summer 2021 faculty-led programs.

France Business, Europe Marketing and Nordic Business summer 2021 faculty-led programs have converted to summer I virtual experiences. Australia Accounting spring 2021 field trip has converted to a spring 2021 virtual experience.

The university has canceled programs with travel itineraries that are less than four weeks or to multiple countries from May to August 2021. This cancelation includes the Chile, Croatia, and Scotland Entrepreneurship summer 2021 faculty-led programs and the Financial Environments spring 2021 field trip.

Chile Entrepreneurship and Scotland Entrepreneurship have moved to winter 2022 faculty-led programs.
