Travel Programs

Thank you for supporting the Undergraduate International Travel Policy. Faculty and staff program organizers are a vital component in providing enriching and safe global experiences. 

What happens if I do not apply for Program Approval?

Undergraduate students from Columbia College, Columbia Engineering and the School of General Studies may not be able to obtain School Sponsorship if the programs they want to attend have not received Program Approval, and as a result they will be in violation of the Undergraduate International Travel Policy should they still attend your program. 


Can I add additional details and/or destinations to my application once it’s been approved?

Yes! You may make edits to to your application at any point. Please note that adding new details and/or destinations will place your application back in “Review” status until the Undergraduate Travel Review Committee reviews, assesses and provides a new determination.  If locations added are of a medium, high or extreme location risk rating, your application may need require steps as well as a new review and assessment.


How long will review and approval of a Program Approval application take?

We are committed to reviewing and assessing applications in a timely and prompt manner. Each Program Approval application will be reviewed and assessed individually for several risk variables, as the safety and security of our students is our priority.


How do I know if my Program Approval application has been received? Approved? Denied?

You will receive an email from when your application is received, as well as when a final determination has been made. You may also check the status of your application or any other required steps of the Program Approval process by logging in to the Undergraduate Travel Web App.
