University policy requires a review and approval of travel to high risk destinations. However, we strongly encourage program leaders to submit any short-term program abroad plans for review and consultation. We are happy to provide insight on potential risks or best practices to better keep travelers safe and answer safety and security-related questions.
The University Policy on International Travel requires a review and consultation for programs traveling to high-risk destinations designated by the U.S. Department of State as Travel Advisory Level 3 (Reconsider Travel) or Level 4 (Do Not Travel). Program information must be recorded on the Study Tour Reporting Form and submitted to International Safety and Security at least two months in advance.
Optional Review & Consultation
For travel to non-high-risk travel destinations, approval for short term programs resides at the College, School, or Department level. However, we encourage program leaders or other administrators to submit program plans for review and consultation. The preferred format is the Study Tour Reporting Form as it contains all the necessary information; however, a basic review can be conducted based on a program itinerary.
