LSA International Travel

The University of Michigan has set forth basic international travel requirements as part of the UM SPG 601.31. In November 2016, the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts set forth additional provisions as part of the “LSA International Travel Policy.” All members of the LSA community must comply with this policy. Any person (whether UM-affiliated or not) who may receive funding from an LSA unit or participates on an LSA-organized experienced is also encompassed under this policy. The full text of the LSA Travel Policy can be found here

Students, faculty, and staff may not travel nor can funds be released from LSA departments until all requirements of the LSA Travel Policy have been met. International travel compliance for the College of LSA will be coordinated through the CGIS office.

For more information, please review the presentation given to LSA Chief Administrators in February of 2017:
