WMU study abroad knows that life can be unpredictable, so some students may wish to purchase trip cancellation and/or interruption insurance for their study abroad program. Such insurance plans may provide financial protection in the event that a student must unexpectedly cancel or interrupt their educational program, and having it may prevent unforeseen circumstances from presenting a substantial financial loss for students who must later withdraw from a program to which they are committed. While WMU SA does not require students to purchase this insurance, all study abroad participants are advised to consider purchasing it, as is not included in the GeoBlue health insurance coverage provided by WMU. Please read policies carefully before purchasing insurance so that you know exactly what is and is not covered. While WMU does not endorse any particular company, a few examples of online vendors where trip cancellation policies can be purchased are included below.
