International Travel Guidelines

Travel Notification and Registration

There are unique risks associated with international travel, and the College wants to help make your trip safe and productive. Several services are provided for employees and students traveling abroad on school sponsored trips. To access these services, you must complete the international travel registry form.  Once we receive your registration, we'll send you a package with information tailored for your trip, including a summary of the school sponsored medical insurance, travel insurance card and access to the assistance service portal.

Travel Assistance Services:

Europ Assistance USA provides certain international services in conjunction with the insurance benefits.  Insureds will be able to reach the Europ Assistance Coordination Center by using the information printed at the bottom of the insurance card which will be issued to you at the time of registering your trip.

Highlights of the Travel Assistance Program:

  • Emergency Medical Evacuation/Repatriation Services

  • Medical Assistance Services

  • Emergency Political Evacuation/Relocation Services

  • Personal Assistance Services

  • Travel Assistance Services

  • Concierge Services

  • e-Services - Online Trip Planning and Tool

Emergency Medical Services and Emergency Travel Services are available only if a covered person is on a trip sponsored by the College.  Please remember to register all travel.

U.S. State Department:  

The U.S. State Department website provides country specific information regarding safety, security and travel alerts & warnings.   Travelers should register through the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).  STEP is a free service to allow U.S. citizens information from the embassy about safety conditions in their destination country.

International Travel Insurance:

The College carries an international travel insurance package that can cover costs resulting from accidents that occur while employees are traveling on business. These are some of the coverages afforded by this policy:

  • Limited theft coverage

  • Coverage equivalent to worker's compensation insurance 24 hours a day, including evacuation and repatriation

  • Bodily injury and property damage liability for rented cars (doesn't include physical damage to the auto itself, so you should still buy that coverage from the rental facility)

Special Notice:  

The international travel insurance policy will not cover losses that result from an act of war or terrorism. Also, if the U.S. State Department prohibits travel to a country, the international travel insurance policy will not provide coverage in that country.
