Insurance Coverage

The University of Minnesota requires that all students travelling abroad on University program be enrolled in the University international travel insurance through Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI). This coverage begins only when you leave the U.S. and ends upon your return to the U.S. All students are required to maintain their U.S. health insurance (whether through parents’ place of employment, a state program, or the University’s student health insurance), including hospitalization coverage, while abroad. Should you have an accident or illness overseas that requires long-term care once you return, your U.S. health insurance will provide coverage for these expenses.
