2020-2021 University Travel Guidelines
Field Trips, Student Assemblies, Special Performances, School-wide Parent Meetings, and Spirit Nights
According to the COVID-19 Industry Guidance for Institutions of Higher Education released by Governor Newsom, virtual activities and events must be pursued in lieu of field trips, student assemblies, special performances, school-wide parent meetings, and spirit nights, when possible. Therefore field trips are not permitted at this time. The safety, health and wellbeing of our students, faculty, and staff is our primary concern. Visit the Risk Management field trips webpage often for critical updates and advisories on class field trips.
This information is specific to travel impacted as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19). As the situation remains very dynamic, please check back for updates.
Cal Poly has suspended all non-essential international and domestic travel for all faculty, staff, students and its auxiliary organizations, including Cal Poly Corporation, Associated Students Inc. and Cal Poly Foundation through June 30, 2021.
Authority has been given to the university president to approve exceptions to the travel suspension when there are compelling reasons that support the academic and co-curricular mission of the campus ("essential travel"). All travel must be approved prior to booking a trip or committing funds.
