The following criteria will be used in determining if travel involving students should be authorized:
- Purpose or Benefit - The experience should enhance the overall educational experience of students and/or advance the institution.
- Individual Well-Being - Travel should be executed in such a way where risks, liability, student time away from classes, and impact on adult supervisors are manageable and acceptable.
- Cost - The cost of the experience should be kept to a minimum, thereby making it as affordable to students as possible. Student travel should not impose an unbudgeted financial burden on departments or the institution as a whole.
- Accountability - Those sponsoring student travel are responsible for ensuring that institutional travel policies and procedures are followed.
