Current University International Travel Policies for COVID-19

Last updated: March 17, 2021

Undergraduate student travel for University of Iowa purposes will not be approved through Aug. 1, 2021. Graduate and professional students may submit a high-risk travel proposal to International Programs for consideration. President Harreld may authorize individual faculty and staff international travel for departures if that travel is specifically tied to university responsibilities. For more details, see the travel page of the UI’s Coronavirus website.

At the University of Iowa College of Public Health, we are working to make global education a reality for all by creating a comprehensive collegiate culture of global health. We provide resources allowing students to engage more tangibly with global public health in the classroom and across campus. Through international research collaboratives and partnerships, students and faculty alike work together to address pressing global issues and crises, ultimately moving the College of Public Health toward becoming a global leader in public health education, practice, and research.
