Undergraduates students on U-M Related Travel (UMRT) must complete the following requirements before travel.
First, determine if your travel counts as U-M Related travel and then continue with the steps below.
A traveling student who meets one or more of the following criteria is on University of Michigan Related Travel (UMRT)
*An international experience is considered U-M Managed or Organized when a U-M unit, faculty, or staff member is involved in creating, funding, or approving the experience, or coordinating the applications and selection of participants.
Register your travel with U-M for the duration of travel.
For students who applied for their program through M-Compass, your program application is your travel registration.
Students are required to enroll in U-M Travel Abroad Health Insurance (GeoBlue) for the duration of travel. For U-M Managed Programs, some departments enroll students in GeoBlue on their behalf, so students should contact the department managing their abroad experience if this is the case.
Additional requirements depend on the U-M travel risk rating of your specific travel destination/s within the country. To determine your country’s risk rating, view the Country Risk Rating page.
Travel registration or Safety Plan/Travel Health Plan Approval does not imply travel approval by your school/college. Schools/Colleges may cancel travel any time, and they may have additional requirements for their travelers.
Students on “Group Travel Abroad” do not need to register their travel nor complete a Safety Plan/Travel Health Plan — your sponsoring U-M department or the group leader will complete a Group Safety Plan on the student participants’ behalf. Details are on the Global Michigan’s Register Your Travel page.
