FAQs for Summer and Fall 2020 Intern and Study Abroad Programming

(As of May 25,2020)

What programs are available for Summer and Fall 2020?

Currently, all Adelante Abroad programs for Mid May and June have been cancelled. All other 2020 programs worldwide are open and still accepting applicants – we have softened deadlines given all the attention and changing information available to the public. Our HQ office is open and operating as normal (with increased health and safety precautions being taken in each location). 

As of May 25, 2020, given announcements made by Spain, Ecuador and our other participating countries, we are cautiously moving forward with our July intern abroad programs worldwide. These countries have announced airport openings, border mobility and elimination of previously required 14 day isolation time, all beginning in June. Therefore, deadlines for July and August program start dates are very flexible. We are working with our candidates and students on a case by case basis. Specifically those that choose to get abroad this Summer and Fall, we are here to help them do so with extra safety measures in place and abiding by all international announcements.

When would Adelante Abroad cancel or suspend a program?

At Adelante Abroad, we aim to maintain standard operations for the remaining Summer, and all Fall terms that are still running. Since the start of this evolving situation, we at Adelante Abroad have expressed our student-based focus and commitment to guide our decisions with a steady and measured direction through this global event.  We will cancel a program if one of our program countries either closes entry to United States or has prolonged interruptions to services provided.

What if my Adelante Abroad Intern or Study Abroad program is cancelled prior to my departure from the US?

Like most companies in education abroad industry, during this time we are committed to extreme flexibility for both applications and payment deadlines as the situation unfolds. If any program is canceled prior to departure, accepted students will be given the option to either:

o Be granted a deferral by Adelante Abroad to a future program session;

o Receive credit toward another available Adelante Abroad program country

(In this case, students are subject to any and all policies and qualifications required of the new program).

What is the refund policy of a student voluntarily withdraws from a program?

A student who has chosen to withdraw from an Adelante Abroad program, without it being cancelled by Adelante Abroad or our partners abroad, will be subject to the published, standard Refund Policy. You can find this refund policy located here.
