Some UNO-approved programs provide insurance automatically. Most affiliate providers and ISEP include their own study abroad insurance in the cost of the program. For more details about your specific program’s policy and how to enroll, please contact your representative. If the insurance provided is not of a similar coverage standard, you will be required to purchase the AIG insurance through UNO.
All other programs (faculty-led, exchange, MAUI-Utrecht, SACI, direct enroll, research, independent study, etc.) require you to enroll in AIG Travel Guard insurance through the Education Abroad Office. All AIG travel insurance policies are designed to cover the cost of unexpected accidents and illnesses a student may experience while traveling abroad. Traditional medical insurance may not cover medical expenses, emergency medical evacuation, transportation, or repatriation expenses while the insured is overseas, which is why the additional AIG coverage is so important. AIG provides a high level of emergency assistance services and support as well pre-departure information to help prepare students for safe travel abroad. AIG coverage does not replace traditional medical insurance. Do not discontinue medical insurance while abroad.
Students who are planning to travel outside the United States should contact the Education Abroad Office in advance of their international travel, in order to purchase AIG Travel Guard Insurance. Once the student has purchased insurance, the Education Abroad Office will provide them with their policy number and documents so the student can review them and create an account in AIG's travel assistance portal.
If you have any additional questions regarding coverage or enrollment, please contact Education Abroad.
