Additional Notes

  • Travel registration or Safety Plan/COVID-19 Travel Plan Approval does not imply travel approval by your college. Colleges may cancel travel at any time and colleges may have additional requirements for their travelers. 
  • Students who are on “Group Travel Abroad” do not need to register their own travel or complete a safety / travel plan since their sponsoring U-M department or the program leader will complete a GROUP Safety Plan for international travel (for Program Leaders) on the student participants’ behalf. Details are on the Global Michigan Register Your Travel page.
