While You're Away

Safety & Security


The safety and security of our students, staff, and faculty abroad is our highest priority. WVU has taken steps to ensure that our students are safe during your time abroad.  WVU has partnered with International SOS to offer international health insurance to all WVU students, faculty, and staff traveling abroad on a university-sanctioned activity. We encourage you to learn more about the policy, its benefits, and its services by exploring the 'travel information' link.

International SOS provides health and security information for over 220 countries, and acts as your first contact in case of an emergency.
