International Travel Insurance

The insurance package provides coverage and services to: the University’s Students when participating in University sponsored and approved international study abroad programs; as well as to University Trustees, Faculty, Staff and Volunteers while on approved international travel for University business.

The University Human Resources Office recommends that each campus establish written procedures for foreign travel. Procedures should include a requirement that authorization to travel should be made in writing prior to the travel. These documents should be kept centrally on each campus and/or made easily accessible.

The University’s international travel coverage is intended to provide the first line of service and protection to the University’s travelers. Prior to traveling, international travelers should still contact their personal health insurance company to make certain they understand what additional coverage they may have in place, or may want to put in place, while traveling abroad. Any additional coverage purchased would be at the traveler’s own expense.
