  • Contingency plan in the event of cancellation/modification
  • Budget
    • Accommodations
    • Dining
    • Transportation
    • Event registration fees (if applicable)
    • Incidentals

Processes for Faculty to Initiate a Study Away Experience

Tarleton Student Travel Registration

Required of all University-sanctioned student travel, this process includes trip registration (to be completed by the instructor alongside the college's Budget and Record Specialist) and a trip profile/waiver to be completed by all travelers.

Travel Approval Request

This process is required of all proposed University travel as a part of Tarleton's COVID-19 response. Instructors will be required to submit a travel approval form and a travel safety plan.

Study Texas Grant (optional)

Instructors have the opportunity to apply for funding to offset travel expenses for Study Texas trips in Spring 2021 and Summer 2021. These funds will be awarded to students. Funding requests for Summer 2021 are due March 1, 2021.

Applied Learning Experience (ALE) Designation

Instructors can also apply for a Study Away trip to count as an ALE to help students work toward earning a cord for graduation. Students will be required to submit a reflection assignment and an artifact to earn ALE credit.
