MasonGPS Travel Registration

Registering Independent Educational Travel

Are you planning international travel that is university-sponsored or related but is not part of a GEO study abroad program? If so, register your travel with MasonGPS! Students pursuing independently arranged international educational travel experiences, such as internships, independent study, service learning, or dissertation research, must register their travel through this system. This ensures adequate insurance protection, timely notification, and institutional support in the event of a travel emergency or international crisis.
