Pre-Departure and Travel Support

All UNMC student travelers are asked to carefully consider health, safety, and security issues related to their international travel plans prior to departure.  The U.S. Department of State and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are two key public resources available to help travelers understand and assess relative risks abroad. The Overseas Security Advisory Council Crime and Safety Reports also provide destination-specific assessments. 

All students going abroad under the auspices of UNMC will be asked to contact the OGE and register their planned trip and provide contact information and sign a waiver of liability form prior to departure. 

UNMC does not approve student travel to any location for which either the U.S. Department of State or the CDC advises U.S. citizens not to travel.  Additional restrictions on high-risk travel and high-risk activities abroad can be found here in the UNMC Travel Policy Mem. 25.

Finally please review the U.S. State Department's website on Studying Abroad.
