Register with Triton Travel
Triton Travel (the UMSL Travel Registry) is a secure database that allows the Office of International Studies & PRograms to locate students and other participants in UMSL-related travel abroad who encounter difficulties or other challenging situations, such as natural disasters, political instability or civil unrest, and health emergencies. In recent years, UMSL students and others have faced each of these problems, and we need your participation in order to maximize the support services we can offer in an emergency. When an incident occurs abroad, we will rely on Triton Travel as the official source of information that forms the basis for our emergency response protocols (e.g. evacuation notices). We will use the information you have provided through Triton Travel to locate and connect with you.
All UMSL students and graduate assistants as well as non-student participants are required to register their university-related travel outside of the United States, regardless of whether or not credit will be earned abroad. University-related travel includes but is not limited to:
- Travel that is funded in-part or in-full by the university
- Travel led or promoted by university faculty, staff, or units
- Any academic program abroad under the direction or supervision of an UMSL department (such as dissertation or independent research)
- Any program where credit or degree requirements are fulfilled

Information for faculty and departmentsAny UMSL student participating in an academic program abroad under the direction and supervision of an UMSL department is considered an UMSL student during the time they are abroad. Therefore, all UMSL students should be registered at UMSL for the period they are abroad and follow the UM System requirements for documentation and insurance coverage. This ensures the student participant has the full rights and responsibilities of a UMSL student, and protects the university from potential liability.
The Department Chair will provide the dissemination of information regarding the UM System policies on travel registration and insurance to the faculty, program directors, advisors, or designated individuals whose responsibility it is to inform students of the mandatory travel registration. The department sponsoring the program will remain the primary contact and coordinating office for all aspects of the program.
The Program Director and/or Department will be responsible for the following:
- Development and securing of all program logistics
- Overseeing all aspects of program and ensuring they meet all safety and academic regulations of the UM System
- Advise students of all the required materials to be completed
