Student Travel Registry


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 Study Abroad & Global Engagement.

Student International Travel Policy

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 abroad.  Registered student organizations which support or promote international travel should contact Study Abroad & Global Engagement to register.

All students who travel abroad for University-related purposes must register their international travel and provide all supporting documentation no later than 30 days prior to their expected departure date.   Students may access the Travel 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 Study Abroad & Global Engagement, 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.

For further information about the Student International Travel Registry, contact Michele Arellano, Associate Director Study Abroad & Global Engagement, at michelea@ku.edu.

Personal Student International Travel

All students who travel abroad for personal related purposes are encouraged to register their international travel and provide all supporting information no later than 30 days prior to their expected departure date.   Students may access the Travel Registry for Personal International Travel.
