GVSU International Accident and Sickness Insurance
GVSU requires all students participating in an approved credit-bearing overseas activity to be covered under the Chubb International Insurance Plan. Accident and sickness insurance is something that most of us don’t spend a lot of time thinking about until it is needed, but it is a very important part of the planning process. If you have an OASIS application that has a status of Accepted, Conditional, or Completed, you will automatically enroll in for this insurance coverage and billed through your GVSU student account.
Why is this mandatory?
The health and safety of our students is our top priority. Many insurance policies do not offer adequate coverage for international travel. Specifically, most domestic insurance plans do not offer a 24/7 international emergency assistance program. In the event of a critical incident, GVSU wants to ensure that students have access to emergency assistance and adequate insurance to cover them while they are abroad. While we understand the desire to save money, we have made it a top priority to find an affordable policy that offers a wide-range of coverage that will benefit students.
Who can enroll in this plan?
Students participating in international credit-bearing programs who are registered in OASIS are automatically enrolled. This policy is also available to students who are participating in GVSU supported international activities that are not-for-credit (see enrollment section for details on how to enroll). Faculty and staff who plan to travel internationally on university-related business may also enroll in this program for the same low cost. If you have questions about whether you are eligible to enroll, please contact the Padnos International Center.
