Assisting students in staying safe while studying abroad is a top priority for our staff. The UA Education Abroad office has emergency policies and procedures that are continuously reviewed and updated for all approved programs. We work proactively to provide students with access to information about health and safety prior to their departure and while they are abroad. We monitor the world situation daily through available channels, such as the U.S. State Department's Bureau of Consular Affairs website and the daily information provided by the Overseas Security Advisory Council. We convey such information to our students when necessary.
University of Alabama (UA) students who participate on a study, internship, service learning, research, or travel abroad program are required to enroll in the designated UA International Insurance policy. Enrollment in the policy is processed by the UA Education Abroad office. The current insurance provider is Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI). CISI has been vetted and approved by UA Education Abroad and the UA Risk Management Office.
