What You Should Know
Whether you travel domestically or internationally, ensure that someone in your department knows how to reach you in an emergency. Currently, students register trips in Concur; for all others, your travel will be registered if you book your trip using Concur.
If your trip includes international travel, get an International SOS card and become familiar with the services offered should you need help.
