The University provides a comprehensive accident and sickness insurance policy specially designed for students, faculty, and staff participating in international education programs.
Accidents or sickness which occurs while traveling internationally pose unique challenges. Participants may be unfamiliar with the medical services and locations of their host country. Language barriers and different billing requirements may affect prompt medical services. In addition, serious injuries may require the need for medical evacuation or repatriation services.
