    Register Online with a U.S. Embassy – Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (top)
    The Office of International Education strongly recommends that all current study abroad students register with the local U.S. Embassy in their host country. Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) is a free service provided by the U.S. Government to U.S. citizens who are traveling to, or living in, a foreign country. STEP allows you to enter information about your upcoming trip abroad so the U.S. Department of State can better assist you in an emergency. STEP also allows Americans residing abroad to get routine information from the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate. Please do take the responsibility to register your stay abroad with the U.S. State Department while on your study abroad program.
