UNC SOM Policy: To enroll in any global health elective or to travel in a student role, regardless of credit or funding support, every student is required to receive final OGHE approval by completing the SOM OGHE Pre-Departure requirements 8 weeks in advance. Faculty permission to enroll in a course does not deem your elective approved until OGHE confirms travel is permitted. Failure to receive OGHE approval will result in academic forfeiture of credit completed abroad, reimbursement of any SOM funding to support your global program, and put you at significant financial and medical risk should you travel without completing the OGHE requirements.
