A Message Concerning International Study Waivers

Dear students,

Given the travel restrictions still in place in many countries and the recent cancellation of the majority of Texas A&M sponsored abroad programs for the summer, the Department of International Studies has approved a waiver of the International Experience requirement for students who are on track to graduate by December 2021 in order to ensure their timely graduation.

Students that need to avail themselves of the waiver are required to complete the following google form ( and meet with an INTS advisor.

The waiver addresses ONLY the International Experience requirement--students will still need to complete the coursework necessary to earn all the credits required by their degree (i.e. Area Studies, Foreign Language). To help students complete their coursework, the Department of International Studies will offer summer courses suitable to fulfill most of the areas of the INTS and MODL degrees.

We are ready to adapt to the potential upcoming changes in the extremely fluid global situation we are living through. All the while we will work to preserve the health and well-being of our families, friends, and our university and local communities, as well as the integrity of the INTS degree.

Thank you for your patience, your good will, and your commitment to Texas A&M.

Best wishes,
Dept. of International Studies
