University of Michigan and CGIS policies exist primarily for the protection and safety of students. As a CGIS global study program participant, you are subject to U-M rules and regulations as well as to those of the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA), any other home school or college in which you are studying, and CGIS. We expect all participants to read, understand, and adhere to U-M and CGIS policies, guidelines, and contractual documents.

To participate in a CGIS program, you must abide by CGIS policies and eligibility requirements. Read the section regarding CGIS Program Eligibility to learn more.  

If you do not meet these requirements, you will be dismissed from your CGIS program and are still responsible for any associated costs.

Read  all of the policies listed below very carefully before signing the Participation Agreement for International Travel Experience on M-Compass. By signing this form, you agree to accept responsibility for all fees, conform to standards of conduct, have U-M Travel Abroad health insurance, comply with any request for medical clearance, and so on.

Special Note to Non-LSA Students
CGIS policies apply to all students participating in CGIS programs. However, certain policies may only apply to U-M LSA students and may not apply to non-LSA students. If a policy is not applicable to non-LSA students, instructions are included within the policy for non-LSA students to consult their home school or college.
