IOC Travel Request

As part of the Study Abroad Guidelines in Response to COVID-19, International Oversight Committee (IOC) travel requests are required for all study abroad programs. 
 
IOC travel requests will be reviewed approximately 60 days prior to the program start date. 

Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, the IOC review timeline and travel approval decisions are subject to change.  Programs approved to travel may still be subject to suspension before the scheduled departure, or participants may be recalled while abroad. 
 
Students applying for reciprocal exchange and affiliated study abroad programs will submit individual travel requests using the “Students” travel request form: Student Travel Request Form
Note – for faculty-led programs, the faculty program leader will submit a group travel request on behalf of the program.  Students will not submit individual requests.
 
UTA Study Abroad prepared the following video as an overview of the IOC process and to provide clarification of the IOC travel request form for intended study abroad students.
