International Travel Gateway

The university adopted the Regulation on Student International Travel and Approval of Study Abroad in spring 2017 aimed at promoting the well-being and safety of NC State students who engage in international travel. All students engaging in university-affiliated international travel will be required to register with the Study Abroad Office. This will allow the university to provide greater support to all students who engage in university-affiliated international travel, whether or not for academic credit.

  • All students engaged in non-credit-bearing, university-affiliated international travel must submit their itinerary to the International Travel Gateway. 
  • Students participating in study abroad are registered through their study abroad application
    • any independent travel before, during or after their study abroad program should be submited as an itinerary record within the study abroad application
  • Students traveling for personal reasons (for example, summer or spring break vacation) should not submit a record in the Gateway.
  • CVM Offshore students should register in the Gateway but will not be enrolled in international health insurance.
  • Faculty and staff should NOT enter travel into the Gateway.
