Summary: UGA Short-Term Non-Credit Travel Abroad
Collaborative OIE/College approval for one-time, short-term travel abroad is designed to
accommodate groups of undergraduate students who travel abroad with a faculty member in
order to engage in academic activities such as performance, recital, scholarly research, or
presentation of work.
For this streamlined review to be used: (a) The students must be staying at and participating in an
organized festival, conference, or exhibition, or similar host institute sponsored event; (b) The
activity should be non-credit and not anticipated to be repeated; and (c) The time abroad should
be no more than seven days in the country of residence (not including flight/travel days).
1) Attach a brochure or URL describing the event (festival, conference, competition, exhibition,
etc.) in which the group will participate, as well as a daily breakdown of the expected activities
of UGA students at the event.
2) Attach the State Department Country-Specific information Sheet for each country to be
visited. See: http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/cis/cis_1765.html
Faculty are also strongly encouraged to register student groups with the US Embassy. See:
