Travel Preparation

Department of State Resources

The United States Department of State offers valuable resources to American travelers abroad and has created a website dedicated to American college students studying abroad: http://studentsabroad.state.gov. As you prepare for your program, and while you are abroad, check their website for the most up-to-date information including travel and safety tips, warnings, alerts, and country-specific updates. Some of the resources you’ll find there include:

  • STEP Enrollment Program to register with the nearest U.S. Embassy
  • Country-specific conditions and travel warnings/alerts
  • Travel and travel safety tips

 

Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP)

Before all travel, register your plans with the U.S. Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) at https://step.state.gov/step/. You also may access the STEP program enrollment from the U.S. Department of State’s website by clicking on the blue suitcase with the white check mark or from the State Department’s dedicated smart phone application.

Be sure to include all ways a consular officer can contact you, which may include residence hall phones, hotel phones, cell phones, etc. If there is an emergency in the States or in the location to which you are traveling, the consular official will use those numbers to contact you directly.
