Can employees, graduate students or undergraduate students travel for academics or business?

Employees, graduate students, and undergraduates traveling for in-person research or instructional field activities do not need prior approval for single day trips using ground transportation for either in state or outside of Wisconsin. Ground travel that includes an overnight stay, regardless of destination, as well as all domestic and international air travel, remains restricted. In limited cases, academic deans, vice chancellors and research directors may approve essential overnight and air travel. Prior approval will be required and Essential Travel Exemption Form will need to be submitted. In addition, all current campus health protocols must be followed including wearing facial covering.
