International Travel Policy and Procedures

Travel Procedures for International Travel are directed by the TMCC International Travel Policy along with NSHE Board of Regents Handbook, NSHE Procedure Guidelines, The State of Nevada, and Federal Guidelines.

TMCC’s International Travel Procedures governs all travel abroad opportunities sponsored by, related to, or affiliated with the college. This includes travel by students, or programs arranged by a college, department, program, or club. This policy does not govern travel programs that have no formal affiliation with and/or are not approved by the college.

Responsibility and Enforcement

International Travel Procedures apply to all faculty, staff, students, and volunteers traveling outside of the United States for college-sponsored or college-related purposes, which may include, but not limited to, study, research, internships, service, conferences/presentations, teaching, performances, student activities, or athletic competitions.

Propriety should be exercised when incurring travel expenses. Expenses incurred while in official business travel status will be reimbursed only if the expenses are properly authorized, reasonable, and documented. Expenses incurred by a traveler that do not comply with procedures are the responsibility of the traveler. Travelers are expected to be fiscally responsible at all times during travel.

The College encourages and supports international travel by faculty, staff, and students. Recognizing there are special risks associated with international travel, these procedures are intended to promote the health, safety, and security of all members of the college community while traveling abroad and to define the review and approval process for college-sponsored or college-related international travel.

The College reserves the right to prohibit or suspend college sponsored or university-related travel to any destination by faculty, staff, or students if significant health, safety, or security concerns pose risks that warrant such a decision or if the college procedures for international travel are not followed.
