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 experience is also encompassed under this policy.
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. These provisions go beyond those elaborated in the UM International Travel Policy and are intended to facilitate communication with and locating our travelers in an emergency, such as a natural or political critical incident. The full text of the LSA Travel Policy can be found at the link below:
LSA International Travel Policy (last updated October 2018)
LSA Students, Staff & Faculty must adhere to the additional requirements listed in the LSA International Travel Policy if their travel meets any of the criteria listed below in the definition of LSA-RT (LSA Related Travel).
Non-LSA students, faculty and staff are also required to comply with the LSA International Travel Policy if their travel meets the criteria below AND their travel is affiliated with an LSA unit (i.e. receiving funding, leading LSA students abroad, etc).
LSA-Related Travel is any travel that falls under the auspices of University of Michigan Related Travel or UMRT (originally defined in the University of Michigan SPG 601.31). Below are a few examples of when UM-RT would also be considered LSA-RT, and thus, travellers are required to complete the additional items in the LSA Travel Policy.
Travel compliance and international health & safety resources / concerns for the College of LSA will be coordinated by the LSA International Travel team, who are stationed within the CGIS office (200 Weiser Hall).
