Hours of Operation During the Holiday Season

Now is the time of year when most students have time to give serious thought to their specific plans for upcoming study abroad programs. We in The College of Global Studies look forward to continuing to work closely with you in that planning process. We are writing now with information about our holiday schedule so that you can plan to be in touch with us as necessary in the coming weeks.

Our normal business hours are Monday to Friday, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM ET. The university will be closed for the holidays from Monday 23 December through Wednesday 1 January, reopening on Thursday 2 January. Special arrangements are being made to work with students whose programs start during or soon after the holiday break.

In the event you need to be in contact during the holidays, please leave a voicemail message by calling 1-866-927-2234.

On 26, 27, 30 and 31 December, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM ET, Program Manager staff will be checking voicemail messages on a rotating basis (on 1-866-927-2234) and returning calls to respond to questions or concerns from students scheduled to depart in late December or early January.
