We carefully monitor the U.S. Department of State consular information. As a general rule, Harvey Mudd College does not send students to countries for which a travel warning has been issued; there are some exceptions, requiring additional waivers signed by students and parents.
Harvey Mudd College also reserves the right to rescind approval in cases of political instability in a particular country. We invite you to monitor the information individually at: Travel.State.Gov.
We consult with faculty experts and contacts in Washington D.C.
We stay in touch with our affiliates and program sponsors.
Our affiliates are in close contact with their staff abroad and they receive frequent safety updates.
Staff abroad are in contact with local embassy personnel, local police and faculty experts.
Safety issues are addressed during the study abroad orientations.
Harvey Mudd College requires International Student ID Card (iNext) be issued to all students. Some program sponsors issue these card; while Harvey Mudd issues cards to students who will not receive a card from their sponsor.
