Successful completion of the online Travel and Travel Card course (including passing the quiz) is required in order to obtain the card.

International Travel

  • Prior to booking a trip abroad, employees must submit a request for pre-approval of international travel using Concur Request. Concur routes the Request for active approval from the department and the designated International Travel Approver (officer) for the traveler’s organizational unit; if high-risk destinations are involved, Concur also routes the Request to the appropriate chancellor/president or his/her delegate. All approvals must be obtained prior to booking the trip.
  • Concur Request provides helpful links to University Risk Management and to the campus export control offices for additional information.
