In the event of a political, social, or health emergency or natural disaster, UFIC is in close contact with our on-site staff for all study abroad programs sponsored through UFIC. In an emergency, the on-site staff will locate and maintain contact with all students. UFIC will coordinate with the on-site staff to develop plans based on feedback from local authorities, the US Department of State, NAFSA, our insurance company and the US Consulate or Embassy nearest to the program location. Students are advised to remain in close contact with the on-site staff in any emergency situation. Please contact UFIC whenever you believe there is an urgent/emergency situation of concern. We also encourage you to download and print this Emergency Contact Card and fill in the local emergency numbers of where you're going.
