Insurance

All students traveling abroad are required by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia to carry additional insurance that covers medical evacuation, medical reunion, and repatriation of remains. Most packaged study or intern abroad programs will include the cost of this insurance as part of the program fee. In the event that insurance must be purchased separately, the study abroad advisers in the International Education Center can assist with enrollment in the very affordable study abroad insurance program through Cultural Insurance Service International. The package provided to Georgia College by CISI includes the above mentioned benefits with no deductible, a security rider to assist with evacuation in the instance of natural or political calamity, and a helpful online portal to access information on doctors, claims and more.

Some students may also wish to purchase additional travel insurance to assist with the financial burden of delayed or cancelled flights, lost luggage, and family emergencies that result in cutting stay abroad short. For more information about travel insurance, please contact your local travel agent.
