Note: Payment is by credit card, or personal check or money order made payable to “UWM” only. Cash is not accepted at this time.
To apply for a card: Complete an ISIC/ITIC form and submit it with a color photo (per the size specified on the form) to the CIE Main Office in Garland Hall 138. You can opt to have the photo taken in our office when you submit the form. The passport photo rates would apply.
Once enrolled in the insurance, you will receive information regarding access to the CISI health insurance online portal. There you will be able to:
- View/print/e-mail your ID card, coverage brochure, consulate letter and claim form
- Purchase extra insurance for a period of personal travel
- View/update your online account profile information
- Search for hospitals and clinics overseas
- Find valuable travel-related information
Seek medical assistance for any incident that you think may require service. CISI will not cover expenses for follow-up medical service in the United States if an incident report was not filed while abroad.
Most hospitals, clinics, and doctors abroad will not accept CISI insurance at the time of service. This means that you (or the sick or injured student) will have to pay for the medical care, then later submit a claim form for reimbursement (paying for medical service fees is not the responsibility of UWM or the Study Abroad Office). To ensure that you are reimbursed, it is very important that you keep all medical service receipts.
Travel Registration and International Health Insurance
Here at UWM’s Center for International Education (CIE) we want to assure your time abroad is as safe and enjoyable as possible. To ensure this, it is important you register with the CIE Study Abroad Office.
This registration process will collect important information about your travel, as well as essential information like your passport details and emergency contact information – both here in the U.S. and abroad.
Registration should be completed at least three weeks prior to departure (i.e.: if you depart June 1, you must register by May 11) to ensure proper processing. Any registration requests submitted within three weeks of departure could be subject to a $50 late registration fee. If applying within five business days of departure, a rush fee of $50 will be applied in addition to the late application fee.
Please see the Faculty/Staff tab below, and refer to the Faculty and Staff registration portal for more information.
Processing of registrations and insurance is not done same day. Please plan accordingly.
Faculty members leading student groups abroad should use the Faculty and Staff registration portal: https://uwm.edu/cie/study-abroad/for-faculty/travel-registration/
Certain student groups should use their designated registration portal in lieu of the “Register Travel Online” link below. These groups include:
EMBA International Business Residency Program
Investment Management Certificate Program
Osher Lifelong Learning Institute International Travel Tours
Sustainable Peacebuilding International Fieldwork Program
By registering your travel you will also be able to request CISI international health insurance enrollment coverage. CISI is not travel insurance, so it may not necessarily be used to cover the cost of canceled travel or lost luggage. This insurance is meant to supplement, not replace, travelers’ regular insurance plans. The cost of the insurance can be paid for by check or money order in the CIE Study Abroad Office, or invoiced to a department or unit on campus.
Please note it is also possible to have someone register on your behalf as a proxy.
Processing of registrations and insurance is not done the same day. If traveling alone or with other UWM faculty or staff, you must register at least one week prior to departure. Requests within five business days of departure may be subject to a $15 rush fee, please plan accordingly.
Please note that students are charged a $100 International Activities fee that includes the cost of insurance for up to four weeks, emergency support as well as access to all of CIE’s services. If the International travel is longer than a month the faculty will be charged an additional fee of $35 to extend coverage.
