On the other hand, if the international travel is not an approved program but is CU-related (CU-sponsored, CU-affiliated, or related to a CU Boulder activity/program), the travel must be registered through the International Travel Registration process, and the services outlined under the International Travel Registration tab (above) are provided.
All travelers are required to submit their citizenship and emergency contact information to facilitate insurance and STEP registration. In addition, travelers will sign a few waivers, complete an online pre-departure orientation, and read the International Traveler Handbook.
In addition to these requirements, group leaders will complete an online group leader orientation and sign group leader waivers.
The U.S. Department of State's Smart Traveler Enrollment Program is a free service that allows U.S. citizens and nationals traveling abroad to enroll their trip with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate. By enrolling, you will:
- Receive important information from the Embassy about safety conditions in your destination country, helping you make informed decisions about your travel plans
- Help the U.S. Embassy contact you in an emergency, whether natural disaster, civil unrest, or family emergency
- Help family and friends get in touch with you in an emergency
You will be required to register for the STEP program prior to your departure.
