Study Abroad Students

All study abroad participants must be covered by a comprehensive international health insurance plan while abroad. Students participating in a Fordham-run semester program (Fordham in London and Fordham in Granada), Fordham Exchange Program, Fordham Partner Program or one of Fordham's short-term undergraduate programs sponsored or approved by the International and Study Abroad Programs Office are automatically enrolled in a comprehensive health insurance plan for their time abroad.

Fordham's Study Abroad insurance plan is for international use only and is active from the study abroad program start date until its end date. Fordham's SHIP Insurance is for domestic use only and is not active while a student is participating in a semester-long program. Students who are enrolled in Fordham's SHIP Insurance while studying in NY should contact the student insurance office ([email protected]) to determine any potential gaps in coverage between semesters.
