Graduate and professional students undertaking Notre Dame-sponsored international travel should take the following steps before going abroad:

Travel Registry

Register international travel in the university’s Travel Registry two weeks prior to departure so that NDI has information about your trip and can contact you in the event of an emergency. The University may not be fully able to assist or arrange evacuation for those who do not register travel through the NDI Travel Registry.

Enroll in STEP (U.S Department of State Smart Traveler Enrollment Program).
