Study Abroad/Field Experience Travel Insurance:
All TCSPP-sponsored student abroad programs are required to enroll all participants in our school's plan. This supplemental plan covers sponsored faculty and students while they are in their program with additional coverage of a student or faculty's regular health insurance plan with special insurance for travel. Please note that all inquiries and assistance with claims must be handled directly through their insurance carrier and TCSPP and International Programs and Services do not manage any insurance claims or reimbursements.
