|Egypt Progam Update|
Update July 12, 2011
While we do not expect that our students will experience any serious disruptions this fall in Alexandria, we have a comprehensive crisis plan with several contingencies. These range from alternate courses that have already been approved for credit by Butler University to evacuation to the American University of Sharjah, where students would be able to continue their study of Egyptian Arabic.

In the meantime, we are also working to secure additional locations in the Arab world in the event that we must cancel our Egypt programs for the fall. We also will continue to update our audiences on the status of our Egypt programs, as well as alternate options, as much as possible.
Update March 15, 2011
We have notified all fall 2011 Egypt applicants of our decision to keep Cairo closed for the fall. Cairo students are being given the option of attending our program in Alexandria, and both Alexandria and Cairo applicants may also consider our alternate program in the Middle East.
