Any UMSL student participating in an academic program abroad under the direction and supervision of an UMSL department is considered an UMSL student during the time they are abroad. Therefore, all UMSL students should be registered at UMSL for the period they are abroad and follow the UM System requirements for documentation and insurance coverage. This ensures the student participant has the full rights and responsibilities of a UMSL student, and protects the university from potential liability.

The department sponsoring the program will remain the primary contact and coordinating office for all aspects of the program. The Department Chair will provide the dissemination of information regarding the UM System policies on participant documentation and insurance to the Program Director, whose responsibility it is to obtain and forward all required materials from each participant to the ISP-Study Abroad Office by the deadline each semester.
