Student Travel Policies

The student travel policies apply to undergraduate students, post-baccalaureate fellows, and graduate students traveling internationally with Harvard sponsorship. These policies, which were developed by University and School leadership, are designed to balance your academic freedom and your physical safety.

Review the policy closely to ensure you meet your pre-departure requirements in a timely manner to receive funding or credit.
