Travel Request Form Test


General Information Before Starting

Domestic travel must be submitted at least FOUR (4) WEEKS in advance of the trip, and international travel must be submitted at least SIX (6) WEEKS before the trip. It is more important now than in the past that international travel be submitted on time, as additional procedures are being put in place:

"Please be aware that some new services being performed by International Studies and Outreach, such as registration with the Department of State's online travel registration system, require additional processing time. Requests to countries on the State Department's travel warning list require additional review by the Office of Risk and Property Management, consequently travelers should allow additional processing time." (Robert J. Sternberg, Provost and Senior Vice-President.)
