Global Education

Travel Registration

The Office of International Affairs is committed to providing a secure learning experience for every member of the Ohio State community pursuing an educational experience abroad. Recommendations to protect the security of those on an international experience have been developed to promote the well-being of every participant including students, faculty and staff. 

This section is for Ohio State students, faculty and staff traveling on international academic or co-curricular programs that are not administered by the Office of International Affairs (OIA). Global Education programs administered by OIA are those programs for which students apply and are admitted directly through OIA.

Students admitted to an OIA global education program are automatically registered and do not need to complete this process. 

Six weeks prior to departure, individuals engaging in Non-OIA administered travel should register their travel to:

  1. Complete university protocol for international travel, including potential completion of the approval process for travel to a risk designated country.
  2. Identify and register your travel.
  3. Confirm your enrollment in the supplemental international health & security insurance.
  4. Register in The Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).
  5. Receive additional health and safety information to prepare for their travel.
