International Insurance

All students participating in a study, internship, service learning or research program abroad are required, and automatically enrolled, in the mandatory UIU International Health Insurance Plan provided by CISI. Other health insurance plans are not accepted.

The cost for the insurance, which will be billed to your student account, is as follows:

  • Semester programs: $250
  • Short Term Programs: $75 (if program lasts longer than a month, please contact educationabroad@uiu.edu
  • Faculty-Led Programs: cost is incorporated into the program fee

Once enrolled, you will receive an electronic ID as well as proof of enrollment in the form of a letter. However, if you need a more specific letter for student visa purposes, please contact our office. In addition, please familiarize yourself with CISI's web page as it provides important information about coverage and procedures when a situation arises.


1. The governments of Australia and New Zealand require all students to enroll in their health insurance plan as a requirement for participation in their study abroad program. As a result, students attending these countries will not be required to enroll in the UIU International Health Insurance Plan.

2. Students attending a program in Puerto Rico will not be enrolled in the UIU International Health Insurance Plan as Puerto Rico is part of the United States and American health insurance plans are widely accepted.

3. Students attending an ISEP program will be required to participate in the ISEP health insurance program. As a result, students will not be required to enroll in the UIU International Health Insurance Plan.

4. Students attending a study abroad program in which the international health insurance is included as part of the program fees will not be required to enroll in the UIU International Health Insurance Plan.
