The Center for International Studies has recently updated our Internship Guidelines to align itself with new regulations instituted by the Office of Global Opportunities.
All students who travel abroad must register with the Office of Global Opportunities (for research, internship, study, etc). The purpose of the registration form is to document the student’s travel, ensure you are registered with the US Embassy (or your home country embassy if not a US Citizen), and ensure students have health insurance coverage. If international students plan to do academic work of some kind while going home on break, you will also need to complete the form.
An additional waiver is required if a student is traveling to a country that is under a US Department of State travel warning. Exceptions are made in this case for international students returning to their home country. In the case of countries under travel warnings, students will be interviewed by a committee to ensure they understand the risks.
