Why Do We Register International Travel?1. SAFETY The University can’t respond or assist if we don’t know where you are.2. INSTITUTIONAL DATAWe are a globally engaged university and should be proud of our growing number of students, faculty and staff gaining significant international experiences. Numbers are important.3. ACCOUNTABILITYGood risk management reflects good stewardship of resources and care for our university students, faculty and staff.
WhoShould be Registered Before Traveling Abroad?All students, faculty and staff travelling outside of the United States for any period of time on a University related activity.Exception: students already applying or accepted for study abroad through the study abroad office and faculty leaders for our approved study abroad programs are not asked to complete this registration as it is a duplication of information we will have already collected. WhenShould People Register?The earlier the better but at least 4-6 weeks prior to travel and before a request for Travel Authorization is made on BASIS. Important: No university funds may be authorized prior to approval for student travel.
