Graduate and Professional Students
The Duke University International Travel Policy requires that all Graduate/Professional students enter their travel plans in the Duke Travel Registry if a trip abroad will be funded by, sponsored by, or entails earning credit to be transferred to Duke or used to earn a Duke degree. This University-wide policy applies to Graduate/Professional students in all programs at any of Duke's schools, institutes, departments, programs, and labs and went into effect March 1, 2017.
In addition to registering, Graduate/Professional students planning to visit a destination on Duke's Restricted Region List must also sign and remit a High Risk Travel Waiver-Release form to the Travel Policy Administrator prior to departure. The Waiver-Release will be tailored for the individual, noting his/her travel dates and destination, and it will include the most up-to-date travel warning or alert. To begin the Waiver-Release process, please return to the home page in the upper left-hand corner of this page and select the button that best describes your travel (restricted or non-restricted destination).
Registration information is considered confidential and will only be used in the event of an emergency.
