Travel Registry

Register Your SDSU International Travel

Who must complete Travel Registry?

  • Students: Travel Registry is required for San Diego State University (SDSU) undergraduate and graduate students traveling internationally, unless they have already applied to participate in an approved* SDSU international program in the SDSU Aztecs Abroad database. 
  • Faculty & Staff: All SDSU faculty and staff must now complete the Travel Registry when planning to travel internationally for SDSU business-related travel. 
  • Group Travel: If SDSU students will be traveling as a group (either with faculty and/or staff), one Group Leader must submit the initial request through the Group Trip functionality. Instructions can be found below under the SDSU Student Club and Organization International Travel and Faculty/Staff - Traveling Abroad WITH SDSU Students types of travel.

* Approved SDSU international programs (e.g. SDSU exchange programs, SDSU partner programs and internships, SDSU faculty-led study abroad programs) do not require Travel Registry. Students on these programs apply via the SDSU Aztecs Abroad database, and complete all requirements within Aztecs Abroad.

Process:

  • Deadlines / Timeline: The Travel Registry process should be completed and submitted as soon as your participation is confirmed. If your travel dates change, it is your responsibility to edit your dates of travel in the Travel Registry and on your SDSU Travel Abroad Insurance. If you decide not to travel, you must contact [email protected] immediately to cancel your trip in the Travel Registry. It is your responsibility to cancel your SDSU Travel Abroad Insurance.
  • Health & Safety: SDSU's Travel Registry allows SDSU to monitor and communicate with affected students, faculty and staff in the case of a health and safety emergency. 
  • Contact: If you are unsure whether your situation requires you to complete the Travel Registry, please contact the Global Education Office at [email protected] or call (619) 594-2475
