UVU personnel participating in non-UVU-sponsored international activities should consult with the sponsoring institution/organization about acquiring international insurance. Many institutions require enrollment in their plan.

The cost for travel insurance is $20/week, per person. If your travel is three months or longer, the cost is $65/month, per person.
