Travel Insurance

To protect you and your trip investment, the College strongly encourages you to purchase travel insurance from an insurance company of your choice. Most medical insurance companies offer greatly reduced benefits when traveling internationally (if they offer any at all), and they usually provide very limited to no coverage for an international medical evacuation. Please consider budgeting for and purchasing travel insurance.

Don't forget your waiver!

Please complete the trip waiver form after you register for the trip. Reach out if you have any questions!
