Student Travel

Register your Trip!
When traveling away from Wellesley College on College sponsored or funded trips, all students are required to register their travel with the College using the above link to the form provided. Trip registration will enable the College to better assist you and/or your group if travel conditions change or there is a local or regional threat or disturbance. Trip registration also supports some College administrative functions as we are required to provide aggregated travel date to our underwriters.  
 
Students traveling abroad with college sponsorship or support (including funding, credit or other organizational assistance) should familiarize themselves with the Wellesley College Student/Alumnae International Travel Policy, which details which overseas destinations are eligible for support from the college. 
 
Trip registration with the College does NOT automatically register you with the Chubb/AXA travel services described below. We strongly recommend that you register with Chubb/AXA through their website or the Travel Assistance Services App for all travel so that you can receive all the benefits described. See below for more information.

Travel – Foreign or Domestic

  • Students traveling abroad through the Office of International Study should carefully review the information and instructions provided on the Office of International Study’s website.
  • Students traveling on an internship should contact Wellesley Career Education for important travel safety information.
