Duke University policies and procedures apply to all students studying abroad/away on programs administered by Duke University, as well as to all Duke University students studying abroad/away on Duke-approved programs. Both students and their families should be familiar with these policies.


The GEO Summer and Semester Handbooks are updated annually in the spring and distributed by email to all students enrolled in a study away program. We advise downloading a copy to your laptop in the event you are without internet access on your program and need to reference this important information.
