All Northern Michigan University study abroad students are encouraged to maintain adequate international insurance coverage during the period of the time abroad. You are also strongly encouraged to maintain adequate domestic insurance. Your health and safety are very important.
Some students benefit from discounted prices when traveling, especially in Europe. Your NMU Wildcat Express I.D. may not be accepted as valid proof of student status in most other countries. That’s where an ISIC can come in handy. The ISIC carries basic sickness and accident insurance, including minimal emergency evacuation coverage, [plus access to a 24/7 traveler assistance hotline in case of medical, legal or financial emergency. The ISIC can be purchased at cost in International Programs during normal business hours. To find out more, go to: http://www.isic.org
