Travel Guidance

You will find the latest travel guidance from the University below. For additional guidance, reference the New York State website and the CDC’s website.

Students currently abroad, or planning to go abroad

Students currently studying abroad need to be mindful of travel re-entry requirements for their return destination. In the cases of the return destination being the US, students should follow the CDC’s US entry and testing requirements.

All University students who will be studying abroad in a future term or semester are required to get the COVID-19 vaccination prior to departure; if eligible, it is highly recommended for students going abroad to also receive the COVID-19 booster prior to departure. Starting summer 2022, there will be no COVID-19 vaccine exemptions for University students studying abroad. ​All travelers must also remain aware of entry requirements for their host destination, as restrictions may continue to change.

If you are a student planning to study abroad in the upcoming semester and have questions about the vaccination requirement, please contact

Faculty and staff planning travel abroad

University faculty and staff should register University-related international travel in the University’s Travel Registry to ensure they receive appropriate travel assistance coverage while abroad and so that the University can assist in the event of an emergency. While not required, travelers are also encouraged to reach out to Global Engagement ( for a risk consultation. Travelers and their departments/schools should be aware that varied and changing travel restrictions could necessitate testing and/or lengthy isolations and quarantines abroad, and they should be prepared for these as they contemplate travel.
