Student International Travel Registry
University-affiliated Student International Travel
As a top-tier, public international research university, the University of Kansas supports and encourages international travel and recognizes that the formation of international perspectives is an essential educational component within its academic mission. In an effort to create a comprehensive repository of the international activities of KU students, support students engaged in valuable educational activities, and reduce potential risks to students, faculty, and staff, the University requires that all students traveling internationally with institutional-affiliation register their international travel through the Student International Travel Registry housed within the KU Office of Study Abroad.
The University-affiliated Student International Travel Policy pertains to non-credit-bearing international travel by undergraduate and graduate students organized or endorsed by KU, a KU academic unit, or a faculty/staff member, or travel organized by KU student organizations. Activities receiving university funding will be considered university-affiliated and reside within the scope of this policy. Sample activities for individuals falling under this policy might include those participating in performances, competitions, research, academic or professional conference attendance, co-curricular activities, etc. Any registered student group that is traveling internationally should check with the Office of Study Abroad to see if their group is required to register.
All students who travel abroad for University-related purposes must register their international travel and provide all supporting documentation not later than two weeks prior to their expected departure date. Students may access the Registry here.
Students participating in regular, for-credit or KU-administered study, internship, research or service-learning programs will complete the relevant application processes administered by the KU Office of Study Abroad, and therefore do not need to complete a separate application to the Student International Travel Registry.
Campus units sponsoring activities or events covered by this policy have a responsibility to ensure that student participants in KU-affiliated international travel are aware of and comply with this policy.
