Travel Abroad Policy

The quality of the educational experiences and the safety of students, faculty, and staff are the first priorities of NJIT. Owing to concerns for student safety, NJIT does not support education abroad (to include all international, for-credit and non-credit experiential learning activities) to locations where a U.S. State Department’s Travel Advisory levels 3 or 4 have been issued. Students will not receive university sponsorship —including credit for academic programs, financial aid, scholarships, funding for research, or endorsement of co-curricular and extracurricular activities — if enrolled in an academic program in these countries.

In unique circumstances, exceptions to this policy will be considered by petition to the Office of Global Initiatives. The Office, however, will not accept petitions for countries in which the Department of State has issued a level 4 warning that forbids, restricts or otherwise urges U.S. citizens not to travel to that country.
