Per campus-wide policy, education abroad includes attendance or participation in conferences as a UAB representative and University-sponsored activities that take place overseas, including Outreach Abroad, Outdoor Pursuits, artistic performances, athletic activities, or other student organization travel.  Persons participating in such activities are required to:
  1. complete the UAB-Related International Travel Registration and have it approved by the relevant campus unit(s) and
  2. complete online pre-departure certification, which includes elements such as viewing and understanding the pre-departure orientation, passing the predeparture orientation quiz, and electronically signing the waiver and release agreement.

In addition, proposed UAB-related student international travel to any High-Risk Location must be reviewed by the UAB Education Abroad High-Risk Locations Committee.  High-Risk Locations are defined as including all of the following:
  The UAB Education Abroad High-Risk Locations Committee review process is initiated when you, the student, complete this program application.  The review process typically takes approximately 3 weeks to complete.  The UAB Education Abroad High-Risk Locations Committee reserves the right to deny requests for travel to such locations.

All UAB students traveling internationally are required to purchase education abroad insurance through UAB Education Abroad.  Currently, UAB Education Abroad insurance costs the traveler approximately $50 per month that the traveler is on UAB-related international travel.  Your UAB student account will automatically be billed.
