A note about COVID-19

As TnCIS and DSCC welcome students to plan for summer programs, our goal will be to provide the safest learning environment possible. TnCIS will monitor travel recommendations continuously during the application season. Adjustments up to and including cancelation may be necessary. Decisions will be communicated to applicants as early as possible. TnCIS recommends participants be current on vaccinations and boosters due to the ever-changing policies of the travel locations and reserves the right to require vaccinations based on the entry policies for the program countries.
