Concerns Regarding COVID-19

The OEA will be updating our website here with further information regarding the impact of COVID-19 on study abroad as quickly as possible as the situation continues to evolve. Please ensure you are monitoring UNC Charlotte’s Niner Notices and UNC Charlotte's response to COVID-19 here

Updates to OEA Operations

The Office of Education Abroad (OEA) is open, but operating in a remote capacity in response to the directive from the University to maximize social distancing. Please see the following for more information:

Office Hours

The physical office in CHHS 256 will be closed beginning March 19th, 2020. However, all OEA staff members will be working remotely during normal business hours, Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 5 PM, and can be reached via email, phone and virtually.

OEA Phone

The OEA phone line (704-687-7747) will be monitored during normal business hours. Callers are highly encouraged to leave a voicemail (if prompted) with their first and last name, phone number, email address and a brief message describing their inquiry. Calls will be returned during normal business hours as soon as possible.

Virtual Advising Appointment Request

Virtual advising appointments are for students who have completed Study Abroad 101 and who want to discuss studying abroad. Please complete this Virtual Advising Appointment Request form. An OEA staff member will then contact you as soon as possible to set up a date and time to meet virtually.

Students who want to speak with an Advisor regarding COVID-19 or other concerns should call the OEA at 704-687-7747 or email an Advisor directly. A virtual meeting may then be scheduled as needed

Fall Study Abroad

At this time, UNC Charlotte has made no current plans to alter fall programming abroad. The OEA will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and will directly communicate with all approved students regarding any changes to fall programming. Students should closely monitor their email in the upcoming months for any further updates from the OEA. However, at this time, we advise fall study abroad participants to register for on-campus fall classes at UNC Charlotte to be sure they can continue to make progress toward their degrees should the crisis impact fall programming.
