Faculty and Staff

The University of Michigan provides a secure system for faculty, staff, students and sponsored affiliates to record travel plans and contact information. The registry is a convenient, one- stop service that supports emergency communications and access to University approved travel abroad health insurance.

Registering group travel abroad?

  • Please submit a Student Group Travel Request Form and list all student and/or affiliated participants.
  • For UMRT group travel abroad to a U-M Travel Warning or Restriction destination, the program leader must complete a Group Safety Plan for ITOC approval and each participant will need to complete a Safety Plan for Individual Travel for ITOC approval, in addition to other U-M and unit travel requirements. Group safety plans should be submitted at least 4 weeks before making any non-refundable purchases towards a trip in the event travel is not approved or must be postponed. Participants should also avoid making any financial commitments towards travel until after the Group Safety Plan and other participation requirements have been complete.
