  • Requirements for Students Traveling Internationally on University Business

Travel Approval: Students traveling to countries under a U.S. Department of State's travel warning must obtain approval form the University's International Travel Risk Assessment and Advisory Committee (ITRAAC) before departure. NOTE: Applicants are encouraged to apply early as the committee review process commonly takes 6 to 8 weeks. The committee will not consider applications completed less than 2 weeks prior to planned departure.

Register Travel: Students must register travel through the International Travel Registry for Students, which will facilitate completion of the following requirements:

        • Obtain University-approved, mandatory international travel, health, and security insurance (cost is $33/month or $8.75/week)
        • Complete a release and waiver
        • Provide 24-7 emergency contacts
        • Complete online health and safety orientation

Policy

In 2010, the University Senate Committee on Educational Policy (SCEP) charged a Graduate School Policy Review Committee to review and update existing graduate education policies that were previously found in a variety of formats, including the Graduate School catalog and constitution.  The committee completed its work in spring 2012.   Graduate education policies will continue to be developed and reviewed under the direction of the Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Education, in consultation with faculty, staff and student stakeholders.  Please contact gepolicy@umn.edu with questions or for more information.

University of Minnesota Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, Karen Hanson, has developed a proposal to realign administrative support for post-baccalaureate education at the University based on a structure which groups programs into two communities: traditional research-based programs, and professional practice-based programs. The model is informed in part by the work of the Special Committee on Graduate Education (SCGE) in 2013.
