Forms and documents for travels

International travel

The following forms are required to be submitted with the International Programs Office before traveling internationally. The Instructions and Sample Cover Sheet for Student International Travel explains this process for students.

Travel authorization

Chris Fox, the DFO Administrative Assistant, prepared an instruction for students to help with planning for travel with the University and applying for a travel authorization (TA). The TA request form – reporting.xlsx and Travel Authorization.doc forms are what she needs whenever a student is planning to travel for University business.

According to Chris, these processes should be common for DEOS as well as DFO students. The TA forms are new this semester (2016 Fall), but will be regular from here on out.

SMAST Student Travel Grant Programs

The SMAST Travel Grant application process has been revised and the new application form and guidelines are available. The new form now streamlines the process so that SMAST/IMS students can now process one request form to request funds from the SMAST Dean, Department, Office of Graduate Studies, and IMS.

If you want to request funding through the Graduate Student Senate, at this time you will need to follow their process. More information is available at http://umdgss.blogs.umassd.edu/funding/.

If you plan to submit an application, please work closely with Sue Silva who will be able to assist you with acquiring a number of the required signatures.

UMass Amherst Library Access

Updated Feb. 2017

This is a very helpful tip for new students and those who did not know about it. As IMS students we have access to UMass Amherst library. They have a very extensive online catalog of journals and it is easier to find and article and download the full text immediately than in UMassD library.

In order to obtain a username and password, please follow the instructions for Non-Employee, Non-Student (NENS) Application on UMass Amherst. You will need a signature from the SMAST Dean.
