UK Student Registry

Please Note: UK students will not be permitted to conduct UK-endorsed travel to China, Italy or South Korea at this time due to the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-2019). This policy applies to all students at the University (undergraduate, graduate and professional) as well as to graduate medical education (GME) residents, regardless of whether the student is earning academic credit associated with the trip. More information is available at this link.

This travel registry is for UK students, GME residents and postdoctoral fellows who are traveling abroad on trips funded or explicitly endorsed by the University. All such trips MUST be registered in order to maintain compliance with University student travel policy, and to facilitate coverage under UK’s international medical insurance and evacuation plan. 

Activities that must be registered include, but are not limited to, research projects, conference attendances and presentations, non-credit group travel, etc. You should not register personal travel (e.g., vacations). 

If you are enrolled in UK credit while abroad, including dissertation residency credit, you should not register here without first contacting Director of International Health, Safety & Security Jason Hope at jasonhope@uky.edu. Your registration may need to be coordinated by UK Education Abroad. 

All students traveling abroad for UK are covered by the University’s blanket international medical insurance and evacuation policy. The cost of coverage, $10.50 per week, will be billed to your student account statement as one lump sum during the term in which you travel, and will only be charged for your program dates, rounded up to the nearest full week.

All UK students registering international travel are encouraged to review the handbook for non-credit programs abroad, which should provide them with helpful information as they prepare for their trips.

Education Abroad participants should not register here.
