Undergraduates going on Harvard-sponsored international travel MUST complete and submit all health and safety pre-departure requirements prior to receiving their funding award. The Office of International Education (OIE) manages this process and communicates with OCS regarding student compliance. OCS cannot release funds until all health and safety requirements have been completed.
