Instructions for downloading the AlertTraveler app are available in the Related Documents section of this page. If you'll be traveling with a mobile device during your study abroad experience, please download the app before departure. You may download the app within 30 days of your departure date.
One of the most important benefits offered by the app is the ability for you to "check in" if there is an emergency. If you do receive a check-in request, please reply right away.
You may have already received email alerts containing health and safety information for your destination. You will continue to receive email alerts whether or not you download the app.
We hope that the information provided in the alerts will be helpful to you. However, you may notice some alerts are not particularly relevant to your location. Most notifications are sent out on a country-wide level. If you would like to adjust the number of alerts you receive, manage your settings in the "Subscriptions" section of the app.
Please note that the app is only available to Luther College students, faculty, and staff participating in international off-campus study experiences approved by the Center for Global Learning.
