Organizing Group Travel? 

In order to facilitate group travel (study abroad programs, field trips, treks etc.) and eliminate the need for each participant to register themselves, International Health & Safety (IHS) has implemented the following three step process:

Step 1: Approx. 1+ month before departure.

Complete the "Group Travel Brief (DOCX)" and return to travelregistry@cornell.edu

Step 2: Approx. 2+ weeks before departure. 

Provide a final participant roster, using the "Group Upload Template (XLSX)" and return to travelregistry@cornell.edu

Step 3: Verify signed Release of Liability and Standards of Conduct. 

Students uploaded as a group do not automatically sign Cornell’s Release of Liability or Standards of Conduct forms like they do during individual registration. The unit administering the program is responsible for verifying student travelers have signed these documents.​ There are 2 options:

  1. PREFERRED-Online Method: Direct students to Release of Liability and Standards of Conduct Agreements and request a copy of their confirmation email. Signed documents will be maintained centrally.
  2. Print and Sign Method: Utilize the paper versions of Risk Management Forms and collect and maintain (for at least 3 years).

IHS will use the information to “create a group” in the travel registry and upload all participants to that group.

FOR GROUP TRAVEL TO ELEVATED-RISK DESTINATIONS, THE OFF-CAMPUS ACTIVITY LEADER (OCAL) MUST FIRST FILE AN ITART PETITION AT TRAVELREGISTRY.CORNELL.EDU. IF APPROVED, THEY CAN SKIP TO STEP 2.
