Study Abroad support is going virtual in this time of COVID-19 uncertainty

OIA Study Abroad logo

Like offices across campus, OIA has closed its physical doors to limit the possibility of exposing our campus community to COVID-19. However, we are committed to assisting you, and will continue to provide services remotely Monday-Friday, 8:00-5:00 and, on occasion, after hours. We will remain available via email to answer questions, schedule Zoom advising, and provide other services. Soon, we will be holding events via Zoom.

If you’re a study abroad student or applicant/selectee for future programs, we expect that you have questions about how COVID-19 is affecting study abroad. To address these questions, our Study Abroad Team has prepared and continues to update an information page. If you have additional questions or need to set up an appointment, please contact:

  • Jennifer Heinrich (jheinrich@ucmerced.edu) for Programs in Asia, Ireland, & the UK
  • Cece Nunez (cvazquez4@ucmerced.edu) for Programs in North & Central America, the Caribbean, South Pacific, & Mainland Europe (except Italy)
  • Craig R Harmelin (charmelin@ucmerced.edu) for Programs in Africa, Italy, the Middle East, South America, Semester at Sea

Thank you for your patience. We look forward to hearing from you via email or on Zoom, and to the time that we will again see you in person.
