The Travel Registration application will ask students to enter dates of travel, location(s) of travel, purpose of travel, and emergency contact information. It helps improve the safety of those traveling by allowing the University to quickly communicate with students in case of an emergency. 

Travel Registration must be completed no less than 90 days prior to departure. ​

International Travel Health & Accident Insurance Requirement

If students are traveling abroad under the circumstances described above, they are required to purchase DePaul University's travel health and accident insurance plan provided by Cultural Insurance Services International, CISI.  Students will be enrolled in the CISI insurance plan upon completion of the Travel Registration application and will be charged a fee through their DePaul Student Account. After enrollment, students will receive a welcome package via email that includes policy information and an insurance card. 

International Travel to Countries with Elevated Travel Advisories

The U.S. Department of State issues travel advisories related to specific countries or regions. DePaul has an established approval process whereas the Provost must approve in advance all University-sponsored travel to countries that have a Level 3 (Reconsider Travel) or Level 4 (Do Not Travel) Travel Advisory from the Department of State for any part of the country. To find out if a country has a Travel Advisory, please visit the U.S. Department of State website.

To request approval to travel, download and complete the request form. Send it and any relevant attachments as one PDF to the Global Engagement Travel Registration administrator, Sally Roberts, at sally.roberts@depaul.edu
 
I f you are traveling to a Travel Advisory Country with a group, only one application is requested per group and it must be completed by a designated Group Leader. ​ A pplications will be reviewed by the University's Office of General Counsel, the Global Task Force, and ultimately approved or denied by the Provost. The Travel Registration administrator will inform students of the final decision via email.   ​
