All students, faculty, and staff traveling internationally for University-related academic or business matters are required to register their travel through the University's travel registration system DU Passport. By registering in DU Passport, the University can assist in an emergency situation abroad, provide important travel resources prior to departure, coordinate evacuation and repatriation benefits, and better track international efforts of all DU members. For faculty and staff, registration also significantly aids in the handling of worker's compensation claims. Failing to register travel or respond to all registration questions before leaving the U.S. can result in the disallowance of funding or academic credit. Expense reimbursement requests through University Accounts Payable must include confirmation on the appropriate form that travel was registered in DU Passport and that necessary approvals were obtained.
Additionally, all international group programs either for credit or not-for-credit including faculty-led, student-led, alumni, and athletic programs, must be approved by both the Office of Internationalization and Enterprise Risk Management. Units should apply for conditional approval at least six months before travel and obtain final approval one month before travel. After returning from a group-led trip, trip leaders must log back in to DU Passport and fill out the Post-Trip Questionnaire.
To register your international travel or submit a group program proposal, visit Enterprise Risk Management's webpage.
