Guidance on Rutgers-approved Domestic and International Travel by Faculty, Staff, and Students

In spite of the COVID-19 pandemic, mission-critical travel by members of the Rutgers community may be necessary over the course of the coming months.  To reduce the risk that faculty, staff, students, post-doctoral fellows, and administrators will contract the virus during domestic and international travel, we have developed guidelines and processes to help us consider critical travel fairly on a universitywide level, and to help protect the health and safety of us all.

As of September 12, 2021, new forms with fewer levels of review are available.  Please access the new DocuSign forms below, and consult the Travel Approver Listing to identify the necessary reviewers for your department to include on your DocuSign form.
