Students Preparing to Go Off-campus (These forms can all be filled in on-line)
- Travel Information Form
The IGSD must have a completed Travel Form from each student on file before the student leaves for a site. The office keeps a copy of this itinerary and we send a copy with the faculty advisor. By doing this, the IGSD staff, the advisor and the local coordinator know when and where every student will arrive and will be alerted if a problem arises.
- Argentina HUA students only: Visitors to Argentina from the U.S. are required to pay a reciprocity fee. This payment must be made online at www.migraciones.gov.ar. Once you've made the payment please bring a copy of the receipt to IGSD.
- Off-campus Students' Health Update and Records Release Form
The IGSD must have a completed Health Update and Records Release Form on file for each student before the student leaves for their site. The IGSD keeps a copy and sends a copy with the faculty advisor in case of an emergency. The student should list any medical conditions that could affect the student while off-campus (i.e. epilepsy, diabetes, depressive episodes, etc.) Also, the student must list any changes in their health not noted on medical records on file with WPI Health Services. Medical allergies must be listed, as well as prescription medications.
- Acknowledgement and Release
All participants are asked to sign an Acknowledgement and Release Form that is kept on file in the IGSD. We hope that by asking participants to read and sign such a form that we remind them of the nature of their participation and the responsibilities which are assumed by the individuals.
- ATC Laptop Form Laptop Pick-up and Return Dates
Students who participate in the Global Perspective Program are offered the opportunity to borrow lap top personal computers from WPI. This is not an entitlement to students, but rather a privilege extended to students. If you want to reserve a laptop for your group, you need to complete this form and turn it in to the IGSD office BEFORE you make arrangements with the ATC.
