International Travel Petition for Students

UT does not allow students to use university support/funding to travel to or receive academic credit for work completed in countries or regions that are under a US Department of State Travel Advisory Level 3 or 4 and/or a Travel Health Warning (level 3) or Alert (level 2) issued by the Centers for Disease Control. A petition for an exception to this regulation must be carefully thought through by the student, and this petition will be considered by the International Risk Management Committee. Please answer all the questions below thoroughly and with attention to detail. If you do not have the answers to all of the following questions, you MUST contact your sponsoring organization or in-country contact persons to obtain the necessary information requested. Incomplete or insufficient information will result in denial of the request. Travel should not commence until the petition has been reviewed and approved. Please complete the form below and send it to the Center for Global Engagement at itr@utk.edu.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The International Risk Management Committee and/or the Provost reserves the right to revoke approval of petitions at any time. The changing nature of events abroad and revisions in the US State Department or Centers for Disease Control Warnings/Alerts may require additional reviews before and during travel.
