What is STEP?

The Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) is a free service provided by the U.S. Government to U.S. citizens/nationals who are traveling to, or living in, a foreign country.

SMU faculty member, staff person, and student traveling as an individual or in a group in connection with a SMU-sponsored, SMU-administered, or SMU-affiliated activity or program to a restricted region MUST also enroll in the State Department's STEP program.

STEP allows you to enter information about your upcoming trip abroad so that the Department of State can better assist you in an emergency. STEP also allows you to get routine information from the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.
