Kansas State announced Wednesday that they will cancel all fall semester-long education abroad trips.

K-State policy states university sponsored travel is not approved when the U.S. State Department issues a Level 4 travel advisory or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issues a Level 3 warning.

In the spring semester, K-State required students studying abroad to return to the U.S. Also, summer programs were cancelled.

At this time, K-State plans to have a hybrid class model for the fall semester. Classes begin on Aug. 17, a week earlier than originally scheduled.
