Before you leave
Before you leave, learn about your destination. Review your travel insurance, ask about required immunizations and find out about pertinent local details, such as security and political risks, the location of clinics and hospitals, food and water health threats, weather, culture and customs.
Travel has to be authorized before you leave on your trip. If you are a student, contact your instructor, Chair or Dean to ensure the authorization form you complete meets your department’s needs. Different programs have different authorization requirements. Employees complete the staff and faculty authorization form.
To obtain a travel authorization form, send a request to Health, Safety and Environment.
After your travel itinerary is confirmed but before you leave, register your trip so the university can respond to your needs in the event of an emergency.
To register your trip, send a request to Health, Safety and Environment.
