Travel expenses (including airplane tickets and other means of travel) are not paid to Suffolk, nor is Suffolk responsible for paying these fees. Purchasing travel insurance will protect you if you must cancel or suspend your study abroad plans due to a travel warning from the United States Department of State advising U.S. citizens not to travel to a particular country or, if in the country, to leave. Please contact your travel provider for more details.
Check with your health insurance provider to see if their coverage extends to the country where you will be studying abroad. If you do not have coverage, contact our office and your study abroad program to assess whether you will be covered by insurance provided by your program.
If your provider does not cover international health insurance or you wish to purchase additional coverage, you can inquire with the following insurance companies who offer coverage for the duration of the study abroad program: STA Travel, Gateway Premier – Premier Plan II, CMI Insurance Specialists, Marsh International Plans, Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI), and Reviews.com/travel-insurance/.
