Graduate students who intend to travel overseas independently (not in a GU Group) for university-related or sponsored international experiences should complete an International Travel Authorization Application. 

Graduate Students Traveling in Groups

Graduate students traveling in groups should complete a group travel authorization application instead of an individual travel authorization application

Students who are going abroad to a country or region deemed high risk by the US Department of State's Travel Advisory System should expect an additional 1-2 weeks for the application to undergo further review for approval by the Provost's Office, EVP or designee. 

Law Center students will go through a separate process for travel approval. Please contact the Office of Transnational Programs for more information.

For guidance, see our instructions and application preview.
