Complex export control laws and regulations, administered by the U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of Commerce, and U.S. Department of the Treasury Office of Foreign Asset Control, protect national security, prevent proliferations of weapons of mass destruction, and protect U.S. economic advantages. They govern the transfer of information, commodities, technology, encryptions, software, and financial transactions. This impacts international travel, transfer of certain information to foreign nationals within the U.S. and abroad, some educational courses (including study abroad courses), and access to export-controlled equipment. Release of controlled technology may require a license from the governing agency. Please be aware that the consequences of non‑compliance include severe civil and criminal penalties for the University and all individuals involved, which may include hefty fines and imprisonment.
