Insurance Information

Students traveling on Cornell-sponsored course trips and students receiving credit for study abroad(including internships, special projects, or courses) are covered by a supplemental travelers' insurance plan through EIIA and Europ Assistance. (Cornell has purchased this insurance on your behalf. International & Off-Campus Studies just needs to know from you about your program overseas.)

While abroad and covered by this insurance, you can submit a claim for emergency services to EIIA first. For non-emergencies, students usually submit a claim (for services rendered abroad) to their personal medical insurance company first.

Financing your Study Abroad Experience

Learn about scholarships and fellowships for all levels of study through Academic Affairs. For information about scholarships (Cornell and outside), you can contact the Coordinator of International & Off-Campus Studies.  Be sure to look for scholarships on your program's website too.

Tips for Writing an Effective Scholarship/Fellowship: Make your scholarship application stand out.

Travel Information 

Passport: A passport is required for US citizens to travel to most foreign countries, including Canada and Mexico. Our office recommends that you apply for a passport ASAP, allowing at least 6-8 weeks for processing. Applications for new passports and passport renewals can be found on the US Department of State website.  

Country-Specific Information: Want to know more about where you're going? The Department of State has specific information about travel, customs, government, for every country in the world. 

International Student ID Card (ISIC): Depending on where you are traveling, having the ISIC can help net you discounts on travel, museums, excursions and more.
