Insurance for Global Travelers


As part of your travel registration, you will be required to download International SOS, UW’s emergency assistance provider.


For students (or anyone enrolled in a credit-bearing capacity, including if the travel is related to employment), you will be prompted to download International SOS as part of your study abroad requirements. All student accounts will be charged for your global insurance, based on the duration of your program or official activity abroad.
Students participating in a UW study abroad programĀ will complete insurance enrollment as part of their study abroad application process.

REMINDER: Per the Official International Student Travel Policy, if you do not register your travel, you are not eligible for this Cigna coverage.


For faculty, staff, and other academic personnel, your international insurance is sponsored by the Executive Office. Please note this coverage is solely for official UW travel.
