Study Abroad Insurance

Study Abroad programs organized and managed by the Georgia Institute of Technology (GT) provide supplemental insurance to all participants.  This supplemental insurance, provided by CISI (Cultural Insurance Services International), includes medical, medical evacuation, repatriation of remains, and security (political unrest/natural disaster) coverage. All students who participate in GT study abroad programs or International Academic Projects are required to have this study abroad insurance plan coverage. For more information on the policy, review the CISI Brochure & Claim Form

The myCISI mobile app is an excellent way for student to view insurance cards and consulate letters, find providers abroad, view travel warnings and alerts, submit claims or check-in during an emergency. This video provides more information regarding the myCISI mobile app and checking in:

PLEASE NOTE:  GT study abroad programs do not provide other types of supplemental insurance coverage, such as theft insurance, trip cancellation insurance, etc.
