Columbia University requires that all members of the University community comply with specific procedures for Columbia supported travel. Columbia supported travel includes:
- Columbia-Led Travel – is mission-related travel that is organized and overseen by Columbia University
- Columbia-Facilitated and/or Recognized Travel - travel that is not overseen by Columbia University, but that may be partially funded or arranged by Columbia, may earn academic credit at Columbia or may be coordinated by a Columbia recognized student group or may be an extension of a faculty or researchers professional work
Students who are participating in domestic travel through a program or activity offered through CC/SEAS Undergraduate Student Life, including travel conducted by recognized student groups with or without the support of an external organization, must register their trip using the Student Domestic Travel Form. For international trips, students must comply with the Undergraduate International Travel Policy. The site also contains helpful resources for students throughout all stages of international travel planning. Consult with your advisor as soon as your organization begins to consider an international trip.
Student Life Advisors are available to assist with even the simplest trips - reviewing your plans and logistics, discussing trip budgets, and letting you know about helpful resources and required documentation. Reach out to your adviser as early in the planning process as possible!
