International trips supported by the university – Student
As of June 10, 2021, the University has been authorized by the NSHE Chancellor’s Office to allow students to study abroad. The international travel authorization process will resume using the normal policies and procedures described in section 1.404 of the University Administrative Manual. In addition, the University will allow students to travel under the following conditions:
- Student travel is permitted to countries that have been designated as risk level 3 or less by the United States Department of State and the Center for Disease Control upon departure. All international travel requests must be reviewed by the International Travel Authorization Committee and approved by the Marshal.
- Students will be required to return to the United States, at their own expense, if the score of the country in which they are studying exceeds a risk level 3.
- Students are required to provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination record to study abroad and be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before departure.
- The University also strongly recommends that students studying abroad purchase their own travel insurance through a CISI group policy sponsored by UNR. The covers include the cost of health, medically necessary evacuation and trip interruption and does not exclude losses related to COVID-19.

Please note that COVID 19 infection rates, while declining in the United States, are still very high in many parts of the world. Please consult your study abroad provider / organizer on whether or not a specific international destination meets the UNR international travel authorization criteria.
