Student travel Checklist

Before travelling abroad be sure to check the following:

  1. Educate yourself about the political, geographic and health risks of the region where you will be traveling. Obtain and review the relevant U.S. Department of State Travel Advisories. These include Public Announcements, the Consular Information Sheets, Travel Warnings and Tips for American Students Abroad.
  2. If not covered by the University’s Student Health Plan, verify that your family health insurance plan covers medical expenses when you are on student travel in foreign countries. If it does not, you are required to purchase supplemental student travel insurance. (There are several low-cost student travel insurance products for student travel that are recommended by University Health Services.) Review your student travel health plan’s claim filing procedures for coverage abroad and make sure you carry your student travel health plan ID card with you.
  3. Review and complete terms and conditions of the student travel agreement (If under 18, have parent or guardian need to co-sign).
  4. Copy important student travel documents, such as your passport, and keep copies separate from originals in case originals are lost.
  5. All students on student travel with significant on-going health problems or allergies should obtain and wear a Medic Alert I.D.
  6. When you are going to travel, there are many possibilities to take advantage of travel discounts. You can get discount with student discount cards and you can check out the Student Airfare section on Students.net for cheap airfare deals.
  7. Don’t forget to make arrangements for communicating back home. Phone cards, PC to Phone calls and Skype are some of the options where you can save money on international calling.
  8. If you take your laptop with you or are in possession of a smart phone, you can check out international WIFI hot spots to save money on your internet providers’ bill.
