International Travel Insurance Fee. The insurance fee pays for the insurance program. The fee is $20 per week and will be assessed to the individual student account. A week is considered to be 1 to 7 days. The number of weeks are determined by the official dates of the authorized activity. Payment is due no later than 30 days after fee assessment. Failure to pay will result in University holds for the individual student. To calculate the total fee for an activity, use the insurance calculator below.

Coverage period. The student will be covered for the period authorized by the University. There is an additional 2 week personal deviation coverage immediately on each side of the authorized period. This additional coverage will not be charged. The 2 weeks of personal deviation coverage on each side are set and cannot be moved. To determine coverage period, use the insurance calculator below.

The fee is non-refundable. Appeals due to extraordinary circumstances may be submitted to the international travel insurance appeal committee through the International Travel Insurance Change request form. This section will be updated soon with a link to the form.
