Independent International Activities
All UCI students seeking to travel abroad independently with UCI sponsorship or funding must receive advanced approval and risk review per UCI Student International Activities Policy & Procedure approved in January 2020. To begin this process, visit the Independent International Activities page.
UCI Travel Policy
On April 28, 2021, UCI Chancellor Howard Gillman issued a revised Executive Directive-Travel for the UCI community.
The revised directive rescinded the Travel Risk Review Team (TRRT) review process for CDC/CDPH-compliant domestic and international travel for faculty and staff, as well as domestic travel for students, in keeping with the current California Department of Public Health definition of ‘essential’ travel. While travel remains strongly discouraged due to ongoing COVID-19 conditions, UCI travel plans will no longer need to be pre-approved by TRRT. The new policy document is viewable here: https://uci.edu/coronavirus/executive-directives/uci21-uci-travel-directive.pdf
In June 2021, the University of California Office of the President authorized UCEAP to resume operating select study abroad programs according to its risk management plan beginning with fall 2021 and 2021-22 terms.
We want to thank you again for your conscientious work in helping to safeguard the health and safety of the UCI community and our partners around the world during the UC systemwide travel suspension.
