University Requirement

Enrolling in the University Travel Registry is required for all Catholic University faculty, staff, guests, and accompanying family whenever traveling abroad for university-related activities.

About the Travel Registry

The Travel Registry is a confidential database used to maintain key information for faculty, staff and accompanying dependents traveling to international destinations. The Registry is the official and authoritative source of traveler information that forms the basis for the University's emergency response protocols and communications strategy when responding to an emergency or critical incident abroad.


Individual students should register using the website if participating in a university program abroad, whether academic or co-curricular. They should register using the Travel Registry if accompanying a faculty member on an individual trip abroad for research, a conference, or other university-related reason.

Prohibited Travel

Travel to countries under OFAC sanctions or a Level 4 Department of State travel advisory is subject to additional review and may require pre-approval from the provost. Affected travelers should submit their travel request at least one month in advance and should refrain from making financial commitments until approval has been received.
