Policy on Travel Warnings & Alerts

In January 2018, the U.S. Department of State replaced Travel Warnings and Travel Alerts with Travel Advisories for each country in the world. These Travel Advisories include four levels of safety and security risk.

Current TCU policy is based on Travel Warnings and Travel Alerts. While new policy is moving through the approval process, the Center for International Studies (CIS) will liaise with appropriate administrators to obtain approval for proposed travel to areas of heighten concern. Faculty and staff should feel free to contact the CIS with any questions or concerns.

Learn more about the new system and view a complete list of Travel Advisories at, including detailed information about safety and security factors that may impact your travel plans, as well as State Department recommendations for your proposed travel location.


Per Diem Policy & Rates

Faculty and staff traveling internationally on a Center for International Studies program and those colleges that have opted into the policy (Business, Education, Honors, Liberal Arts, and Science & Engineering) will utilize a per diem rate for meals and incidental travel expenses abroad.
