U.S. Government Export Control
Texas State University must comply with all applicable U.S. government export control regulations. While most Texas State research and technology development is exempt from U.S. export control laws, these regulations may present complications to the conduct of research and academic activities. The International Travel Checklist requirement is used to ensure traveler compliance with these regulations and identifying when a license or license exception is needed before traveling internationally. More Export Control information can be found at http://www.txstate.edu/research/orc/export-control.html.
The university provides foreign travel insurance free of cost to faculty, staff, and students when they are in business travel status. Information concerning the coverage and how to contact the plan administrator is contained in the Travel Assistance Program flyer below. University travelers must ensure the contact information is with them at all times while traveling abroad so that the information is readily available in the event of an emergency. Travelers may choose to print the information located at the bottom of the Travel Assistance Program flyer, or travelers may obtain one or more copies of a business card with the contact information from the Travel Office.
