International SOS (ISOS)

All employees and students traveling abroad on behalf of the University must register their trip in International SOS and obtain employee or student travel authorization prior to departure.

ISOS is UT System’s travel and emergency assistance provider for all UT System institutions. ISOS offers on-the-ground support, local expertise, preventative advice, and emergency assistance during critical illness, accident, civil unrest, or evacuation and repatriation.  Available services are listed below.

Register your trip in ISOS. Registration for destinations booked through the University Contracted Travel Agencies is automatic.  To register destinations reached using personal or other outside arrangements, the traveler must take action to register them. Find instructions at: utdallas.edu/rs/isos/mytrips/.

Review your coverage period and insurance benefits at the International Travel Insurance webpage. Please note that although you will register your trip itinerary in ISOS, your coverage period is calculated based on the official activity dates authorized by the University (Example: conference first and last date, study abroad program start and end date, internship start and end date).
