In order to register your international program, you must fill out a program proposal online. There are two types of proposal, depending on where your group will be traveling. Please select the appropriate option for your program.
International Program Proposal for Group Leaders (Non-Travel Warning Destination)
Complete this propsal if none of your proposed destinations are currently under a State Department Travel Warning or a CDC Level 3 Travel Warning. This proposal may be used for programs in Mexico, provided your group will only travel to states where no advisory is in effect. Upon receipt of a completed proposal, GEO will create a website for your program where participants may register. GEO will not reject any correctly-completed program propsal, so long as the program has been approved by the chair of the sponsoring department.

Travel Warning Exemption Request and Program Proposal
If you wish to register a program in a destination which is currently under a travel warning from the State Department or CDC, you must complete the Exemption Request. After you have completed this proposal, you will be contacted by the chair of the Health And Safety Advisory Committee to schedule a meeting to discuss your proposal. The Committee will issue a recommendation to approve, defer or deny an exemption, and a ruling will be made by the Provost (for UNM Main Campus, branch campus and Law School programs) or the Chancellor (for HSC programs). This ruling may be appealed to the President of UNM. Approval of exemptions for programs in regions under a travel warning is not guaranteed. The Exemption Request process can be lengthy, so you are strongly urged to begin this proposal well before your group's planned departure.
If you have any questions about the process for either proposal type, or if you experience difficulties while applying, please contact Group Program Coordinator Annette Mares-Duran, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Director of Education Abroad David Wright, email@example.com.
