Health Insurance and Emergency Medical Evacuation

In addition to the safety precautions that we take with students, the UF International Center (UFIC) requires that all study abroad students are covered by international health insurance with emergency medical evacuation while abroad.  All students who participate in a faculty led program will be covered by either Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI) or the insurance that our logistical partner might offer. The costs associated with this coverage are included in the program fee. Students who participate in selected approved non-UF programs that provide adequate insurance, will be covered through the program's insurance and not through UFIC. For more information on CISI please click here for our International Insurance Policy. For students who are a studying on a semester program in Spain that is longer than 90 days, please click here for the International Insurance Policy for Spain.

Many independent program providers and other U.S. universities also have health insurance plans in which participating students are enrolled. Below is a list of such providers whose policies meet UF requirements for health insurance. UF students going on these programs will not be enrolled in CISI.
