All SIS graduate students who intend to complete any academic work abroad, either for credit or non-credit bearing, that is not arranged through the SIS Office of International Programs (OIP) must register this activity with OIP and SIS Graduate Advising. This includes internships, research projects, and conferences abroad. Students traveling abroad for an SIS practica course during the fall or spring semesters must also register their international activity.

For students participating in any of the above mentioned activities abroad:

In order to obtain approval for the desired activity, course registration, and to be covered by international travel insurance, students must complete the online Graduate Global Program (GGP) application. The application includes a required discussion with the student’s academic advisor regarding their eligibility to register for these opportunities and completion of the GGP Trip Information Form. NB: Students participating in an SIS practica course during the fall or spring semesters do not need to receive signatures from their faculty or academic advisor.

Please also note that as part of registering for the Graduate Global Program and obtaining emergency international health insurance through ACE, the student will be charged based on the length of the overseas trip:

$6.50 per week (any portion of a week (e.g., 4 day stay) will be charged as a whole week)

$23.00 per month

$85.00 per semester

You will select the term of your application based on when you begin your travel dates. For example, if your date of departure falls during the summer program application dates, you will submit your application for the summer term.  

If you have any questions regarding this process, please write sisabroad@american.edu.
