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 must be approved by the Chair and Dean of the sponsoring academic unit and communicated to the Center for Global Engagement (CGE) in order to register the international travel of the participating students. Faculty members wishing to set up a non-credit faculty led international experience are responsible for the following:
- having the non-credit program approved by the sponsoring Department and College.
- reviewing and signing the Faculty Leader Responsibility Form and collecting signatures from the Department Chair and College Dean.
- completing the Student International Experience Plan (SIEP) to register students in the International Experience Database. The faculty leader must submit the signed Faculty Leader Responsibility Form and itinerary to the Program Director, Intercultural Programs and Exchanges when submitting the SIEP for the group experience.
Please review the guidance sheet for more information on the required approval steps as well as expectations for and responsibilities of faculty/staff leading or organizing non-credit international travel for students.
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.
