Insurance For Students

All UC students participating in a University of Cincinnati – sanctioned or funded international travel program are required to purchase and maintain insurance while abroad.

How to Enroll?

Faculty-Led:

Individual Travel (Third party, Exchange, Co-op etc):

The Cultural Insurance Services International self-enrollment process allows students participating in UC sanctioned or funded international travel to enroll themselves directly in the customized group insurance plan created for the institution sponsoring their program (with a valid credit card).

Upon successful completion of self-enrollment, you will receive an email from "CISI Enrollments" containing your personalized ID card and consulate letter as well as a detailed coverage brochure with claim form.

Below is a link for participants to self-enroll and pay directly with their credit card.
