News in Brief: Deadline extended for summer abroad programs

Students still debating whether or not to go abroad this summer are in luck – the UC Davis Education Abroad Center (EAC) has extended its summer program deadline to April 15.

And for those who are newly positive they want to enroll in one of the 20 available programs, the EAC is putting on an “Enroll in a Day” event today from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Students can secure a spot in a program in a single day, receiving an extension on certain enrollment items such as health clearance forms. Staff will be available to help in the expedited process.

Programs are currently open in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Ecuador, France, Germany and Switzerland, Greece, Iceland, South Korea, the Netherlands, Peru, South Africa, Turkey, Trinidad and Tobago and the United Kingdom. Subject matters range from film to sustainability, from to winemaking to calculus. For more details on these programs, visit summer-abroad.ucdavis.edu.

The EAC is located on 207 Third St.
