Student Organization Travel - International

Before You Travel

Registered student organizations and sponsored student organizations at The University of Texas at Austin are required to complete important documentation prior to travel.

All registered student organizations must coordinate and obtain approval for international travel from the International Office to ensure compliance with the UT Austin Travel Policy. If the registered student organization is a sponsored student organization, they must also coordinate with their sponsoring department as prescribed by the UT Austin Travel Policy. To learn more and to download the required forms, visit the Division of Student Affairs Student Travel page.

You are also advised to review the university's policy on Travel to Restricted Regions and check the Restricted Regions List. Travel to restricted regions requires special authorization.

Overseas Insurance

The University seeks to ensure that students have appropriate insurance coverage while abroad. In order to work towards this goal, the UT System has instructed all campuses to ensure that students participating in international activities and programs have appropriate health insurance coverage for the duration of their time abroad and are registered with International SOS. Information about the required policy can be found on Study Abroad's Overseas Insurance website.
