Travel Advisory Information

Traveling to Travel Advisory Areas, Levels 3 and 4 

Anyone subject to this policy and intending to visit a travel advisory country/area (levels 3 or 4) must submit supplemental information through the travel registration process that characterizes travel risks, justifies the travel necessity to their work or study, acknowledges additional risk of travel, and documents plans for mitigating risks. Plans for mitigating risks should minimally include registration with the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), registration with an in-country U.S. consulate, development of a plan for emergency evacuation, and other appropriate mitigation strategies. Supplemental approval of travel to advisory areas (levels 3 and 4) must be obtained from the chair/director of a student traveler’s major department(s). All approvals must be documented through the travel registration process. The International Travel Safety Committee will make a recommendation to approve or deny the request to travel to the Executive Vice President and Provost, who has the final authority for deciding if the travel will be permitted.
