The ability to travel is considered to be a fundamental component of academic freedom at Johns Hopkins, but there is also an increasing need for enhanced attention to safety and security concerns on the part of the university and faculty when making travel decisions.

Before you travel on university-sponsored trips or begin summer internships abroad you must complete the following three forms and review the following information:

Emergency Contact Form

Release and Liability Waiver Form

International Travel Checklist Form

Travel and health insurance coverage for students

Emergency communication protocol

Travel safety tips and updates

JHU provides emergency evacuation services to all JHU faculty, staff, students and fellows who are traveling on university-sponsored programs through International SOS. Print your International SOS membership card online and carry it with you when you travel. You will need JHU's member number: 11BSGC000019. International SOS is the world’s leading provider of medical assistance, international healthcare, security services and outsourced customer care.  It is not a health insurance plan, however, and will not reimburse students for expenses.
