Summer Courses

Study Abroad

Spring 2020 Programs

Due to the increasing threat levels, WSU strongly recommends that you return to the US as soon as reasonable.
Important Resources

Upon return, consider the following in terms of your interactions:

  1. Review the CDC recommendations to prevent the spread of the virus:
  2. When you come back to the US, please return to your permanent address and self-quarantine for 14 days.

Questions about spring programs should be directed to Dr. Kelly A. Newlon, the Director of Global Learning (

Summer 2020 Programs

After careful consideration by International Programs and the WSU Executive Policy Group, as well as with the guidance of the Unites States State Department, Centers for Disease Control, WSU Public Health Emergency Preparedness Task Force, and Whitman County Health Department, the difficult decision to cancel all study abroad programs has been made. This includes both faculty-led and program provider programs.
At this time make sure that you communicate directly with your academic advisor regarding coursework to ensure that this does not disrupt your academic progress. Appointments with your advisor will still be made via SSC Navigate.

Additional items to consider:

  • An IP generated FAQ page: There is some information that is potentially helpful for GL students related to working with airlines included.
  • If you have already purchased your plane ticket, we suggest calling your airline in order to request a refund or voucher to be used on a future flight. Keep communicating with them as the policies may adjust as the COVID-19 impact continues to impact the world.
  • Follow the CDC recommendations for preventing and treating COVID-19.
  • It is not recommended that you travel outside the US for the foreseeable future.
  • Learn about the Coronavirus. I recommend this WHO video.

Questions should be directed to the Global Learning Office:

Preparing to Complete Courses Remotely

The information on this page is for WSU students taking courses transitioned to distance learning due to the University’s response to COVID-19.

Internet Capability Concerns

Attending online classes are important. We have heard from a few students that they are dealing with weak internet capabilities and are having difficulty attending classes and Zoom meetings. If you are in this situation, there are several companies that are offering discounts or free service to students affected by COVID-19. This previously linked article may be helpful.

We suggest checking with your local internet service providers to see what offers they are offering to students. Here are some that we found:

  • Spectrum – Offering Free internet for 60 days to college students
  • Centurylink – Suspending data usage limits for current customers
  • Sparklight – Offering unlimited data on all internet services
  • Verizon – Automatically appyling 15GB of high speed data for wireless customers from Mar 25 – Apr 30

The University has also set up an arrangement for students in need of improved hardware to access online course material. For further information visit this WSU Information page.

Wellbeing Online

Wellbeing Online is dedicated to helping you develop skills that foster a happy, balanced life by taking a holistic approach to healthy living. We provide opportunities to learn about all 8 dimensions of wellbeing to help you identify multiple ways to improve your personal wellbeing.
