International Travel Registry for Graduate Assistants, Residents, Fellows, and Students

University of Minnesota students including undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree students, medical residents, and fellows traveling abroad for University purposes1 must register their travel. Registration facilitates compliance with the University’s Education Abroad policy. Note: International students also need to register anytime they are traveling for University purposes including when traveling to their home country.
