On Campus Interviews: April 10 - April 14

Due to popular request and for the convenience of campus travelers, the T&E Team is hosting a Global Entry enrollment event in April 2017. University travelers who have applied and been conditionally approved for Global Entry membership may schedule to complete their interview appointment on-campus during the event from April 10-14, 2017. There are a limited number of on-campus appointments available, so be sure to submit your application online as soon as possible if you want to take advantage of the campus location for your interview.

What is Global Entry?
The Global Entry service provides enrolled travelers with the TSA PreCheck benefits through airport security, as well as expedited processing through customs when arriving at U.S. airports from foreign countries. Visit the comparison chart on the Department of Homeland Security website to review how the programs compare.

How to sign up
Visit the Global Entry event page on the campus' travel website to read detailed instructions on how to apply. First, you'll be instructed to go online to the Global Entry website, verify you are eligible, and then fill out their application. Due to strong interest and possible delays with review by US Customs and Border Protection, we are opening the application process now and recommend that you complete it by February 27. Second, approximately 4-6 weeks after submitting your application, they will notify you of conditional approval and at that time you will be directed to make an appointment for an interview. Space permitting, you can then schedule your interview during the on-campus event.

  • Interview Dates: Monday, April 10 - Friday, April 14, from 9:00am - 2:30pm daily
  • Location: Warren Hall, 2195 Hearst Ave, Room 101A
  • Cost: A $100 non-refundable fee is required with each submitted application and covers five years of enrollment; this is a personal expense not reimbursable by the university. Payment is made by credit card or electronic check. Eligible American Express cardholders may receive credit for the application fee.
