Over the years, two forces have shaped the University’s thinking about international travel of faculty, staff, and students. Firstly, momentous events around the world have made it important for us to be able to quickly identify University personnel abroad. Secondly, as we are increasingly engaged in global programs, it is useful to be able to provide an aggregate overview of the range of engagement abroad each year. Thus, the Council of Deans has adopted a policy that requires registration of international travel for all University students and staff and strongly encourages registration for faculty.

Who Must Register

Registration Exceptions

  • You are Faculty. While not required, you are strongly encouraged to register.
  • You are participating in a program administered through the Study Abroad Office
  • You are managing a program administered through the Study Abroad Office
  • You are not on University business (e.g., vacation)

How to Register

All international travel registration is conducted through the International SOS MyTrips portal, which can be accessed by clicking the MyTrips tab at the top right of the Pitt International SOS page.

NOTE: This is being used in lieu of the pre-existing University Travel Registry.

Once you have created an initial profile, you will be able to enter emergency contact information, register your trip by submitting your flight segments and hotel details for the appropriate dates, and receive a travel advisory email about your destination. Please note that trip legs are entered independently; therefore, we ask that you enter your return trip when registering, this way, the University and ISOS will know that you are no longer abroad in case of an emergency.
