Students must complete the Oxy Global Projects Clearance no later than 30 days (we recommend 6-7 weeks for a complete procedure) prior to departure and/or semester closing (last day of classes), excluding College closures. Please note that your funding will be released only upon the complete clearance. In the online travel clearance, you will be asked to complete the following:

  1. Agreement to Participate
  2. Travel Clearance Questionnaire
  3. Travel Advisory Questionnaire
  4. Any other required documentation (scanned passport, IRB approval, Host Agreement form, etc)
