In response to the situation in Ukraine, the U.S. (in tandem with the E.U. and the U.K.) has issued comprehensive sanctions on the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine and has issued targeted sanctions in Russia and Belarus.


Sanctions prohibit all interactions (regardless of whether money is exchanged or not) with persons subject to targeted sanctions or located in a comprehensively sanctioned country/region.

All members of the University community need to take care that they do not violate sanctions regulations, directly or indirectly.

Current sanctions

Comprehensive sanctions are currently in place for: 

  • Cuba

  • Iran

  • North Korea

  • Syria

  • Crimea, Donetsk, and Luhansk regions of Ukraine

Targeted sanctions are currently in place for:

  • Russia

  • Belarus

Activities may be approved by the U.S. Department of Treasury on a case-by-case basis.


Penalties for violations can be severe and can result in:

  • civil and criminal penalties

  • fines

  • jail time

  • loss of export privileges

  • loss of federal funding

Your responsibility

Please be sure that all interactions with foreign parties are sent to the Export Controls office for review so that we can ensure the party you are working with is not subject to targeted sanctions and are not located in a sanctioned destination.
