COVID-19 Requirements

At this time, TCU will not require students to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to study abroad, to participate in an international program, or to participate in a domestic program away from the TCU campus unless proof of vaccine:

  • is required by the national or local authorities in the program location,
  • is required by the contracted program or logistical coordinator or the local program partner, or
  • is required by third parties to access or participate in required program facilities or activities.

The COVID-19 vaccine is the single most important action travelers can take to protect themselves and protect the host community. TCU strongly advises all students to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to traveling. ​The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns U.S. citizens to not travel until fully vaccinated.

See program-specific pages for requirements of the host country or host program.
