Travel Exception

Dartmouth has created a new process for faculty and staff who may petition their dean or vice president for a “travel exception” to the travel prohibition if they feel that the proposed travel is essential for Dartmouth.  Students are not eligible to apply for a travel exception. 

The process for a travel exception petition will include the following steps:

  • Traveler prepares written proposal to their dean or vice president including the proposed dates of travel, location of travel, name of teir chairperson or supervisor, and reason why the travel is essential to Dartmouth
  • Dean or vice-president will provide written approval (to be uploaded in questionnaire - see below)
  • Travel will then coplete a risk mitigation questionnaire found at providing details of known risks of the travel location and steps to prevent/minimize those risks, and dean or VP approval
  • After review of the questionnaire, final approval for a travel exception will be provided by the Office of the Provost.
  • Individuals will be notified by email from Global Dartmouth if their travel exception request have been approved
