Pre-Departure and Travel Support

Travel Warning reminder: Executive Memorandum No. 25

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.  

"It is the policy of the University of Nebraska that no university-sponsored program of travel for students and members of the general public shall depart from the United States for a country for which the US Department of State has issued a Travel Warning or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Travel Health Notice at Warning Level 3. If such a warning is issued after departure, the guidance provided by the warning shall be followed by participants in the affected area until the senior international officer for the University of Nebraska provides guidance and direction regarding the steps necessary to ensure health and safety, including a possible return to the United States.”

For more details, please see the State Department Travel Warning list.

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. 

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