Statement on Shanghai, China

January 30, 2020

It is with great regret that CAPA: The Global Education Network is cancelling our Spring 2020 programs in Shanghai, China.  The Centers for Disease Control issued a level 3 warning on Tuesday, January 28 to avoid all nonessential travel to China due to the ongoing situation with the coronavirus.

It is never an easy decision to cancel a program, particularly at such a late stage, as we know students and institutions have been planning for months to prepare for their spring semester in China.  We are taking this decision as a precaution to ensure none of our students are potentially in harm’s way and upon advice of our executive team.

CAPA is committed to doing whatever we can to assist our students who were planning on studying abroad with us in Shanghai. We are working individually with them on options for their spring term that meet their needs, including transferring to a different study abroad location or deferring their semester abroad to a future term.  

While the situation continues to evolve, at this time, CAPA plans to operate summer and fall programs in Shanghai.
