Travel Registry

Please register your travel at least 30 days prior to your departure date.

Effective April 19, 2021, students, faculty, and staff who are fully vaccinated may travel within the United States on Dartmouth-sponsored travel. Students, faculty, and staff who are not fully vaccinated may travel within New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island (i.e., New England) on Dartmouth-sponsored travel. All those who choose to travel outside of New England must register in the Travel Registry and travel must be in accordance with the gathering guidelines for travel. Those who wish to travel outside of the designated range may petition for a travel exception through the travel registry process. At this time, undergraduate students are not eligible for an exception to travel outside the United States on Dartmouth-sponsored travel. 

“Dartmouth Business” means travel that Dartmouth requires, supports, supervises, controls, or manages, which is financially supported by Dartmouth or through any Dartmouth account, and/or is expected to result in the granting of academic credit from Dartmouth. Note that travel supported by external grants (e.g., from federal agencies or private foundations) made to Dartmouth is included in the definition of Dartmouth Business.

Travel Exception

Given the ever evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and consequent travel restrictions, all Dartmouth-sponsored international travel and certain domestic travel outside of New England is prohibited until further notice.

If your travel location requires a travel exception, then please be prepared to submit a travel exception request after submitting your travel registration.   Travel exception requests are reviewed to determine whether the proposed Dartmouth-sponsored travel is essential for Dartmouth or essential for the continuation of an educational or scholarly program.

Essential travel is defined as travel that:

  • Advances critical research in the national or global interest;
  • Preserves the continuity of research that cannot be repeated, replaced, performed remotely or by proxy, or that is necessary to preserve the safety/well-being of research subjects;
  • Supports a critical Dartmouth research, educational, or administrative/operational activity that cannot be deferred or accomplished remotely;
  • For graduate students, maintains progress toward academic degree and that cannot be postponed, replaced, or accomplished remotely or by proxy; and
  • For post-doctoral trainees, maintains progress in the training program that cannot be postponed, replaced, or accomplished remotely or by proxy.

Geisel medical students traveling domestically to complete required clinical clerkships at Dartmouth-affiliated training sites may contact Geisel’s Office of Clinical Education for approval rather than petitioning for a travel exception. At this time, undergraduate students are not eligible for a Dartmouth-sponsored travel exception. 

The process of petitioning for a travel exception includes the following steps:

  1. Traveler prepares written proposal to their dean or vice president including the proposed dates of travel, location of travel, name of their chairperson or supervisor, and reason why the travel is essential for Dartmouth or for the continuation of their educational or scholarly program.
  2. Dean or vice-president provides written approval (to be uploaded with questionnaire - see below).
  3. Traveler then completes risk mitigation questionnaire found at https://dartmouth-provgcc.terradotta.com/ providing details of known risks of the travel location and steps to prevent/minimize those risks, and submits with the approval received from their dean or vice-president.
  4. After review of the questionnaire, the Office of the Provost provides final approval.
  5. Traveler is notified by email from the Office of the Provost if their travel exception has been approved.
