Who is this policy for?

For students traveling internationally on or after Tuesday, May 2, 2017, the types of travel covered under the Undergraduate International Travel Policy are different depending on what type of stud

Why a policy just for international travel?

With planned implementation of an enhanced University international travel policy impacting undergraduates, the undergraduate schools recognized the immediate need to develop an aligned process for international travel first. As the undergraduate schools are committed to better supporting the health, safety, and security of our undergraduates while they pursue transformative, meaningful, and engaging educational experiences beyond the classroom, additional time and consideration will be taken to eventually develop a policy that will be inclusive of domestic travel as well.

What do you consider a side trip?

Any travel that is not an official part of a Columbia-Led, Columbia-Facilitated and/or Recognized Travel program’s curriculum/course/itinerary is considered a side trip. All components of side trip travel are organized by the traveler – typically an individual traveler. Side trip travel may be within or outside of the host country and can take place immediately before, during or immediately after participation in Columbia-Led, Columbia-Facilitated and/or Recognized Travel.
