The University Sponsored Student Travel Policy established a Student Travel Registry to centralize vital information about travel activity to improve campus emergency response capabilities. Faculty and staff who plan to lead or sponsor student travel are encouraged to review this policy carefully.
The Student Travel Registry is an important risk management tool that allows student travel sponsored by SUNY Oneonta or affiliates to be registered at a central location. The registry is a repository for information about each planned travel activity and is designed primarily for use by University Police and others designated to manage emergencies.
Faculty and staff leading an authorized student travel activity (or designee) are required to submit appropriate information to the registry prior to the trip. The amount of information required varies by the nature of the activity, e.g., an overnight, multi-day trip requires more detail than a local off-campus trip during a class period. The registry was designed by SUNY Oneonta ITS with ease of use in mind to minimize workload on those placing submissions.

The primary purpose of the registry is to provide immediate access to travel itineraries, student rosters, travel-specific emergency plans, and contact information in case of an emergency. Registry information is accessed by emergency managers through a dashboard showing map locations and dates, and provides quick links to specific information about each travel activity.
Information is collected via a secure Microsoft Form. A separate link is available below for each type of travel activity.
