Study Abroad Advisory of Student Risk

Participation in this UC Davis Study Abroad USA program requires travel to and extended living in a new location. UC Davis Study Abroad endeavors to reduce and mitigate risk wherever possible. However, the environments and risks associated with living in these locations are substantially different than those found during a regular course of study at UC Davis. All participants must download and review the following information prior to departure. Any questions should be directed to the Program Coordinator.
