Travel Registry

CGE Travel Registry

The Center for Global Engagement (CGE) adheres to high standards for risk management when individuals are traveling abroad. We keep a complete registry of UNG-affiliated travel so that, in case of an emergency, we are able to provide comprehensive support. Students, faculty, and staff must register travel

In order to help complete this policy, we've attempted to make this process as easy as possible. You will need information such as the following in order to complete the registry: 

  1. A valid passport for all individuals traveling in your group (the CGE recommends that your passport be valid for at least six months post return to the US)
  2. Travel itinerary 
  3. Flight information

Please note, you can submit a travel registry as often as needed. As last minute trips come up, please be certain to register your travel so the Center for Global Engagement staff knows where you are located.

Department of State Travel Registry

The CGE strongly encourages you to register your travel with the U.S. Department of State's Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). STEP is free, and it allows travelers to enroll a trip with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate. In the event of an emergency, the U.S. Department of State will know where travelers are.

What are the benefits of enrolling in STEP?

  • Travelers receive important information from the embassy about safety conditions in the destination country, helping the traveler make informed decisions about travel plans.
  • The U.S. Embassy is better able to contact you in an emergency - whether natural disaster, civil unrest, or family emergency.
  • Family and friends are able to get help reaching you in the event of an emergency.

Any U.S. citizen or national can register travel with STEP.

Faculty and Staff Travel

All faculty and staff must complete and submit a UNG Professional Travel Authorization Form for approval prior to making any travel arrangements/purchases. This form is available on the myUNG portal, under the "Travel" section of the Forms and Requests page (login required).

Travel Insurance for Faculty & Staff

  • All faculty and staff traveling with UNG students as a part of a faculty-led study abroad program must purchase CISI insurance through the CGE.
  • Faculty and staff not traveling with UNG students may also purchase the CISI insurance through a separate policy available at CGE. 
  • It is also advisable to know if your current health insurance plans provides coverage overseas and the details of that plan.

UNG follows Section 508 Standards and WCAG 2.0 for web accessibility. If you require the content on this web page in another format, please contact the ADA Coordinator.
