Requirements for student participation in programs which require air or bus travel that are offered through any CSU-affliated programs (including a student body organization, or any organization affiliated with any such organization) are detailed in the CSU Student Travel Policy (Executive Order No. 1041).
If traveling outside of the United States, please visit the U.S. Department of State site for information about travel warnings currently in effect. The CSU Executive Order No. 998 prohibits travel to any country where there is a U.S. State Department "Travel Warning" unless a specific exception is made by the Chancellor.
Students participating in CSU-affiliated programs which require travel do so on a voluntary basis and participate at their own risk. Travel involves risks to personal safety which could result in damage to property, injury or death. Students participating in such travel are required to read the "Notice to Students: Release, Hold harmless and Informed Consent Provisions for Student Travel " and to sign a "Release, Hold-Harmless and Informed Consent" statement. Below is a link to the Student Travel Packet, which includes both the notice and required release form:
As outlined in the CSU Student Travel Policy (see link at the top of this webpage), students participating in the CSU-affiliated programs who are traveling by air on flights which are not regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation and/or are not subject to liability insurance minimums established by the U.S. Department of Transportation shall first obtain, or have obtained on their behalf, trip insurance covering bodily injury or death of the student and for the loss of or damage to property in the maximum amount available from American insurance carriers.
Each charter of aircraft or bus for purpose of CSU student air or bus travel shall include indemnity and co-insurance provisions as outline in Attachments B, C, D, E, F, and G of the CSU Student Travel Policy (Executive Order No. 1041), as appropropriate.
Students participating in a Cal Poly Pomona Study Abroad Program should contact the International Center for all details about the program, including insurance requirements.
All other students traveling outside the United States through a CSU-affiliated program should contact Valerie Eberle, Manager of Benefits, Workers' Compensation and Risk Programs, Risk Management Services, at 909-869-4846, regarding insurance requirements.
