USC Travel Management Services provides guidance to travelers in cases of emergency, and also oversees to USC’s Travel Emergency Hotline, who can be reached in cases of emergency at (213) 821-1042.  Please visit for additional information.
For overseas programs, USC's Overseas Emergency Response Plan provides guidance to all faculty, staff, and administrators responsible for implementation of USC's overseas programs in connection with crisis or emergency situations (e.g., accident, death, illness, arrest/legal problems, kidnapping, natural disasters).  This information should be provided to all participants in the overseas program, and should also be held by the on-campus contact person, on-site contact person, and Student Affairs.  Please visit to review the Overseas Emergency Response Plan.
