The University of Michigan says it's moving ahead with spring and summer study programs in Japan that had been in doubt because of federal travel warnings.
The Ann Arbor school says the easing of U.S. State Department restrictions on travel to Japan will let it proceed with the study abroad programs.
An earlier State Department statement warned Americans against travel to Japan because of the March 11 earthquake and the nuclear plant accident that followed. On April 14, the department instead posted a statement that "strongly urges" U.S. citizens to stay 50 miles from the Fukushima nuclear plant.
Rackham graduate school Assistant Dean John Godfrey says students must make sure they follow the university's international travel rules.
