International Travel Policy

CSB/SJU is excited to see students seeking and participating in many activities located outside of the United States. In order to make well-informed international travel decisions and to improve the safety and quality of sponsored international activities, CSB/SJU has an international travel policy. 

This policy applies to any international activity funded, endorsed, organized, or implemented by CSB/SJU faculty, students, staff, or administration involving CSB/SJU students.  These activities include, but are not limited to study abroad programs; internships; campus ministry trips; field studies; service learning; research; athletic competitions; art performances or exhibitions; conferences; volunteer or experiential learning. Please note that this policy only applies to CSB/SJU faculty and staff if they are traveling with CSB/SJU students. 

Students, staff and faculty can find the full process in the International Travel Policy.  The International Travel Policy is administered by the International Travel Risk Assessment Committee (ITRAC).  This committee includes the Provost, CSB/SJU Vice Presidents of Student Development, CSB/SJU Controllers, and the Director of the Center for Global Education.

  • To get started, complete the International travel permission form at least 6 to 9 months prior to the travel dates of the program.
    • If your destination is under a level 3 advisory according to the  U.S. State Department Travel Advisory system, the program will also need to apply for a Travel Exception Request. Contact CGE for more information
    • All sponsored international activities are subject to modifications, suspension, or possible cancellation as outlined in the policy even after approval
  • After approval of the CSB/SJU sponsored international activity, the following items are required:
