Classic Summer 2020


Dear Summer 2020 NC State Prague Students,

Like you, we have been monitoring the continued spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We have carefully considered the potential impact of the virus on our Summer 2020 study abroad programs, in terms of your health & safety, your academic progress, and the health and safety of the communities where you would study. We have made the difficult decision to cancel all NC State study abroad activities for Summer 2020; this includes all programs at the NC State European Center in Prague.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us. The best way to reach our office is by emailing
