Program Description:
REGISTRATION FOR STUDENTS WHO ARE RECEIVING EMORY COLLEGE FUNDING AND/OR CREDIT
(FOR INDEPENDENT TRAVELER UNDERGRADUATE PROJECTS, SERVICE, RESEARCH, AND INTERNSHIPS ABROAD)

This registry is managed by Emory College Study Abroad in the Office of International and Summer Programs (OISP).  It is designed to keep track of Emory College students receiving financial support and/or academic credit from an Emory College department for independent travel abroad projects.  If you are NOT receiving funding or credit from Emory, then there is no need to register through this system.

It is critical that all departments/faculty ensure that their independent traveler students are registered in this database. Students who are independently traveling abroad on Emory-sponsored/funded independent research, service-learning or internships must register with Emory College Study Abroad through this online process. Students need to complete all online questionnaires, electronically sign documents and turn in or email any required material submissions.  In order to access this online registry, please click the 'Apply Now' button at the top-right of this page and follow all prompts. By completing this online process, students receiving Emory funding/credit will then automatically be registered with Emory College Study Abroad in this database.

Academic departments are increasingly sponsoring undergraduates for independent activities abroad (independent study, undergraduate research, service-learning, and/or academic internships), which reflects Emory College emphasis on international undergraduate research and service.  In order for Emory College to respond quickly to situations such as an international crisis or natural disaster that may jeopardize our students' well-being and to assist all of our students in the relevant locations, Emory College Study Abroad maintains this central registry which records what these students are doing abroad, their location, duration abroad, and their multiple national and overseas contacts. In the event of a crisis, Emory College Study Abroad will be able to coordinate Emory College's response, assisting the administration and departments as appropriate.


Registered students who are receiving Emory funding will receive supplemental study abroad insurance through T.W. Lord & Associates for the duration of their time abroad.  Therefore, we need to know the EXACT in-country arrival and departure dates for your independent traveler program.  This insurance policy is meant to be supplemental to any insurance coverage you normally receive. Therefore, you must check with your current insurance provider to find out what will be covered while you are abroad and to understand the policy payments and claim system. If you see a doctor abroad, expect to make up-front payments, most likely in cash, and then you will have to file for a refund from your insurance company. If your current insurance provider does not cover you while overseas, then the study abroad insurance provided by Emory will serve as your primary policy.
 
Emory undergraduate students traveling abroad also have access to the services of International SOS, a travel assistance program.  Students are required to register their travel itinerary through the personal travel locator at International SOS.

Academic and visa-related questions should be handled by the relevant academic department. As an example, there is a strict visa situation for students doing research in Kenya, East Africa: everyone doing a research project, whether faculty or student, has to apply for research clearance from the government, which takes several months to obtain in most cases. Not having the proper entry documents puts individuals at risk of being contacted by the CID (equivalent to our CIA and FBI) and asked to leave the country in 24 hours. Foreign entry requirements for each country can be verified by visiting the Department of State's travel Website.

In addition to registering here with Emory College Study Abroad, it is equally important to register with the U.S. Embassy before traveling abroad.  Information on how to register can also be found on the http://travel.state.gov/ website.
