What is UMB's position on international travel for students?

March 8, 2021

UMB-related international travel for students (e.g. international rotations, courses, externships, research fieldwork for credit or not for credit) are allowed only in exceptional circumstances through Dec. 31, 2021. Deans (or their previously identified designees) have the authority to approve international travel for UMB students in exceptional circumstances, e.g., research that must take place overseas or for a degree or program requirement, in consultation with the provost. This policy is subject to change depending on changing circumstances.

• For student international travel exception requests, deans should consult with the provost prior to approving.
• The Center for Global Engagement is prepared to offer assistance or advice to students as they prepare requests, as well as to student advisors, deans, and the provost as they each consider supporting/approving the international travel exception request.
