Enrollment in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) is required for Catholic University travelers going abroad. STEP is a service provided for US citizens and will:
- Give you important information from the Embassy about safety conditions in your destination country, helping you make informed decisions about your travel plans.
- Help the U.S. Embassy contact you in an emergency, whether natural disaster, civil unrest, or family emergency.
- Help family and friends get in touch with you in an emergency.
Non-US citizens should instead sign up for the Department of State Travel Alerts and Warnings program.
