All students who participate in a study abroad program are required to have the study abroad insurance. This includes all students on Clemson faculty-directed or college coordinated programs, exchange students, students who are studying abroad with external providers and third parties, and direct enrolled students. It applies to students studying abroad for credit and non-credit.
This insurance is provided by Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI). The insurance policy covers basic medical expenses, medical evacuation, medical reunion, repatriation, and a security evacuation rider. Students can enroll for up to 1 additional month of coverage if planning to extend time abroad. The enrollment must be completed prior to departure and proof of insurance sent to the Clemson Study Abroad Office.
