The health, safety, and wellbeing of ISEP participants is our top priority. While you are abroad, you can be confident that you will have the support you need during physical and mental health challenges. All ISEP participants (and any accompanying dependents) are required to participate in ISEP’s Health & Safety Program.

ISEP’s Health & Safety Program includes:

  • Health & Safety Pre-Departure Orientation
  • 24/7 emergency assistance while you are an ISEP participant
  • Crisis management and coordination during a local or widespread emergency, such as an earthquake
  • On-going support and guidance from your student services officer during your program
  • Emergency medical reunion, evacuation, and repatriation services

Most students are required to enroll in a Comprehensive or Limited Medical Insurance Plan that also includes:

  • Student health insurance
  • Healthcare provider referral services

ISEP Health & Safety Program Requirements

Enrollment in the ISEP Health and Safety program and included health insurance and/or global assistance plan is a condition of placement for students on both ISEP Exchange and ISEP Direct programs. This condition  will not be waived even if you are covered under another insurance policy.

Acceptance into your ISEP program is not finalized until you complete the insurance section of your ISEP Acceptance Package. If you do not enroll, ISEP’s Student Terms and Conditions permit us to enroll you into our Health & Safety Plan and bill you for the cost of enrollment.

Your insurance policy’s dates must cover the entire program period listed in your program acceptance package. This means your enrollment dates should begin on or before the “Official Arrival Date” and end at least one day after the “Last Date of Benefits.” For students enrolled in CISI insurance, you may add one week of insurance before your program start date and/or one week of insurance after your program end date.
