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 - 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
Students who are participating in 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 Travel Form. For international trips, students will complete the required registration process through Columbia's Global Travel site and the International SOS organization (ISOS.)
The Global Travel site also contains helpful resources for students throughout all stages of international travel planning.
Student Life advisers 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!
