Process Change Regarding Form 17 Is Effective Immediately - 10/5/10

Business Services and the Office of International Programs have determined that effective immediately the Office of the Dean for International Programs will no longer be required to review and approve the Form 17, Request for Authority to Travel on University Business, for Purdue-affiliated personnel who travel to countries for which the U.S. Department of State (DOS) has issued a travel alert.

Business Services and Office of International Programs ask Purdue business managers and department heads to inform their staff and faculty of the process change regarding the processing of Form 17.

The Travel Office has revised the Form 17, as well as associated instructions to reflect the change.

Please note that the change DOES NOT impact travel to countries under a DOS travel warning. Travel warnings still require a signed waiver and review by the Office of the Dean of International Programs.
