Travel Safety

Before traveling, Dartmouth Travelers must determine if a location they are traveling to requires a "Travel Exception". Participating in Dartmouth Travel without an approved Travel Exception when one is required is prohibited; expenses for such travel will not be covered by Dartmouth according to the Travel Safety Policy.

The Global Dartmouth Travel Registry ("Travel Registry") is used to assist in identifying the needs of Dartmouth Travelers in the event of an emergency. Registration in the Travel Registry is required for all Dartmouth Travelers traveling to international locations.
