In order to support all students traveling to international locations, UT's International Office has put into place a new travel policy. All enrolled undergraduate, graduate and professional students participating in activities or events abroad (whether required or optional) must obtain authorization to travel abroad. Please go to the the Study Abroad website (link provided below) for information on the steps you must take to comply with this policy before your travel.
