Risk Ratings

The Provost's International Travel Policy has been updated to follow the more nuanced medical and security advisories from our partner International SOS.

Per the policy, undergraduates are prohibited to travel to countries, regions, or locations within a country where the International SOS travel or medical risk rating is “High” or “Extreme” or where there is other reliable information of significant health or safety risks.
