The Student Travel Policy

The University of Cincinnati’s Student Travel Policy (1.10.2) clearly outlines established guidelines and expectations that students, faculty and staff must follow while on university-sanctioned or funded travel. This policy has been adopted to better safeguard UC’s undergraduate, graduate, and professional students with regards to insurance coverage, evacuation, and emergency services, and to avoid personal and institutional liability for noncompliance with applicable law, including export control laws, Title IV, and related laws. 

The Student Travel Policy restricts UC sponsored- travel to countries under a U.S. Department of State Travel Warning. Those who wish to visit a country with a travel warning may download and complete a Travel Exemption Form. Students traveling without a faculty or staff leader must individually request an exemption. Faculty or staff leading a group of students must complete a request on behalf of the entire group.

If a student chooses to go to a location on the Travel Warning List without an exemption from the policy, they may not participate in a university sponsored program, receive support from the university, or receive credits (including transfer credits) from the overseas program.

The International Travel Oversight Committee

The International Travel Oversight Committee (ITOC) will review travel exemptions at its monthly meeting. Spring 2014 meetings will be held on the first Thursday of the month (February 6, March 6 and April 3, 2014).
