Student Travel

Student travel is an integral function of Sacramento State. CSU Executive Order 1041 dated July 1, 2009 implements Board of Trustee’s policy on student travel and establishes three sets of requirements for student travel

  1. Requires that students be notified in writing that participation in travel programs is voluntary, and that travel involves risks. (see link to Student Notification Letter below)
  2. Requires that every student sign a Release of Liability Waiver before traveling on a University-sponsored program, and
  3. Establishes minimum insurance requirements for chartered busses and aircraft.


Student travel should be set up and conducted in ways that offer the greatest safety to the participants and the least risk to the University. Use of scheduled or chartered air transportation services should be reviewed and approved by the President or designees. Selection of air carriers, planning of travel itineraries, and conduct of student travel should be done prudently, by university employees with demonstrated good judgment and with paramount concern for the safety of program participants.

Participants in University-sponsored air travel on flights regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation are required to purchase life and personal injury insurance in amounts stipulated by the chancellor. Risk Management or Global Education can provide information regarding “Student Travel Accident” coverage and “Foreign Travel Insurance."
