COVID-19 Update:
Restrictions on college-sponsored travel due to the pandemic are still in effect. Most countries remain at a State Department travel advisory Level 4: Do Not Travel, and the CDC recommends avoiding all non-essential travel. College funds may not be used to fund any international travel until further notice. Due to the resurgence of the virus across the country, college funds may not be used for domestic travel without prior approval from the VPAA. Requests to use college funds for travel will be considered only in extraordinary circumstances and no sooner than one month prior to travel. Please contact Meredith Mumma for more information.

If you are approved to travel with college funds, please email Abbie Cardona (, Assistant Director of Education Abroad, to be added to the college's international travel registry.

CURRENTLY SUSPENDED. Students traveling internationally individually (e.g., on a travel grant) or as a group for Davidson College related purposes must register their travel dates and sign a travel waiver. Please click the button below to complete the registration:

If you are a U.S. citizen, please enroll in the U.S. Department of State's Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive important information from the U.S. Embassy about safety conditions in your destination country. This program will help the U.S. Embassy contact you in an emergency, whether natural disaster, civil unrest, or family emergency.

If you are not a U.S. citizen, please check to see if there is a similar service offered through the foreign ministry of your country of citizenship. You should also check the embassy website for your destination to confirm if you require a visa to enter. It may take up to 90 days to receive a visa and have your passport returned to you, so early preparation is strongly recommended.

Students will find information on health, safety, and smart travel on the U.S. Department of State's Students Abroad webpage. For additional information on health and travel, please visit the Center for Disease Control's Traveler's Health webpage.
