International Travel

Student travelers must submit their own travel applications. Professional staff cannot submit travel on behalf of student travelers.

This process applies to university-related student travel abroad (outside of the U.S. States and U.S. territories), except formal study abroad programs approved for academic credit via the Education Abroad office.

Student participants in events/programs/activities abroad outside of formal study abroad programs must register with the Education Abroad office and must purchase the University-approved international health and travel insurance for the duration of the university-related travel. The process begins with the Notification of Travel form.
