IER Options During COVID-19

Our International Experience Requirement is being offered in modified ways during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are currently waiting for a decision from the university on whether Summer 2022 travel will proceed. Our standard options are outlined below for informational purposes, but it is recommended that you reach out to our staff ( to review your options at this time.

Students may wish to review our IER Fair video from Fall 2021. Since this video was created, Courses Taught Abroad have been cancelled. Students may find the video helpful if they are interested in applying for Exchange or a virtual International Internship as overviews of these options are provided.
