COLBY TRAVEL POLICY

Educating students for our increasingly globalized society is integral to the mission of Colby College. In approving global experiences for our students, safety and security are of paramount importance.  The College bases its decisions for approval of international travel on a number of resources including the Consular Information and Travel Advisories issued by the U.S. Department of State (www.travel.state.gov/traveladvisories) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (www.cdc.gov).

Faculty and staff traveling on Colby business and students traveling for Colby credit are strongly encouraged to register their travel. Registering only takes few minutes and will ensure that the College can assist you in the event of an emergency while abroad. You only need to register once within a calendar year, but if you are a frequent traveler, you will need to update your itinerary before each trip.

You do not need to  complete this step if you have applied for semester and year-long off-campus study through the Colby on-line portal system or if  you are going on faculty-led Colby JanPlans
