International Travel Policy and Registration

In August 2013, Saint Joseph's University implemented two policies affecting international travel - the SJU International Travel Policy and the International Travel Policy for Individual Faculty Research and Scholarship (finalized July 2016, updated November 2017).  These policies were developed with extensive input from Academic Affairs, the Center for International Programs, the Office of Mission, Student Life, Financial Affairs, Athletics, the University's Risk Manager and General Counsel.  Both policies were approved by the President's Cabinet.

SJU International Travel Policy
The University requires that all student, administration and staff travelers and faculty or staff traveling overseas with students must seek approval from the Center for International Programs for all University-sponsored, international travel.   The policy also states that the University will not approve or may rescind prior approval of travel to countries or regions with a travel restriction from the Department of State, the World Health Organization, U.S. Centers for Disease Control or the Department of Treasury.  

Please be sure to read the full version of the Policy, which includes instructions for filing an appeal, protocols for approval and additional information.

International Travel Policy for Individual Faculty Research and Scholarship
This policy indicates that, if travel in support of faculty research or scholarship is to a country or region with a Department of State Travel Warning or similar such restriction, the faculty will need to seek written approval from the Provost and register with the CIP.  Please review the full policy for additional information.

**Please note that the SJU International Travel Policy does not apply to personal travel or on non-university-sponsored trips.  If you are an international student or scholar and would like further information about your immigration requirements for travel outside of the United States and reentry to the U.S., please contact your International Student Advisor.**
