Individual Travel Consultations are a critical step in preparation for a safe travel experience.

Some of the vaccines and medications must be started weeks prior to your travel.  It is critical that you start this process as early as possible. Please make an appointment with Student Health as soon as you know your travel plans.

To begin your travel consultation, call Student Health at (573) 341-4284 to schedule your appointment. You will then be given an online travel questionnaire in your patient portal to complete as soon as possible before your appointment. 

Plan on this appointment taking one hour.

Bring your health insurance card and any immunization records you have.

Walk-in travel appointments will not be accepted due to the amount of research that must take place prior to your travel consultation.

Missouri S&T students who travel internationally under a university program are required to see a licensed healthcare provider to review their travel and health history. This may be completed at Student Health Services by appointment or by a healthcare provider of your choice.  The travel health consultation form  (also located in your study abroad portal if studying abroad) may be completed at any time during the application process but must be completed at least six weeks prior to travel.  Please print, complete the top portion of the form, and bring with you to your travel health appointment. Please review the form for details.  

If you see a health care provider for any ongoing condition, we recommend that you also see that provider to review that any condition is stable and/or any special considerations or treatment you may need while abroad. 

If you are traveling internationally and need enrollment information regarding travel health insurance through GeoBlue, please go to the Student Health Insurance Services page.
