Faculty Travel Information

FSU faculty and staff advisors for individual FSU students or FSU student groups and faculty leaders of international experiences are responsible to ensure that students understand the FSU student travel policy and complete all of the necessary steps to maintain compliance.

The FSU student travel policy applies to all FSU students traveling internationally on a university-sponsored or affiliated international experience.

All FSU-sponsored or affiliated international experiences which earn academic credit are administered by the office of International Programs (IP). Faculty interested in developing a for-credit faculty led program should contact IP to find out more information about the process.

All FSU-sponsored or affiliated international experiences which do not earn academic credit are overseen by Academic Affairs and coordinated through the Center for Global Engagement (CGE). Faculty members wishing to set up a non-credit faculty led international experience are responsible for developing a proposal for the experience, completing the Academic Affairs review process, and collecting the appropriate approval for the program from the Department Chair and College Dean. Once the Dean has approved the program, the Program Director, FSU International Initiatives will collect the appropriate approvals from Academic Affairs. Please contact the Program Director, FSU International Initiatives for the proposal template or for more information about the process or the required Faculty Leader Responsibility Form.

In addition to working with Academic Affairs to coordinate non-credit faculty-led programs, the CGE administers the Beyond Borders Cultural Exchange Programs, International Reciprocal Exchange Programs, and provides limited support for students wishing to enroll directly in an accredited international university and transfer credit back to their FSU transcript.
