Announcement: Extreme Delays in U.S Passport Processing

Currently the U.S Department of State is warning that passport processing times are taking, on average, 12-18 weeks not including mailing time. We recommend that if you have not applied for a passport or need to have your passport renewed that you begin the process as soon as possible.

All study abroad students must have a passport that is valid for 6 months after the expected return to the U.S.  You can find more information on applying for and renewing your passport, as well as processing times, on The U.S. Deaprtment of State passport website.
