To participate in study abroad, please make sure you’ve completed the following items:
To travel abroad, students need a passport. Students who are provisionally accepted into a study abroad program and do not hold a passport need to apply for one as soon as they receive their provisional acceptance letter/email.
Every student participating in a summer study abroad program has to provide the Center for International Studies with a photocopy of the relevant passport pages by March 1.
Emergency Medical Treatment Form
All provisionally accepted study abroad students have to sign an Emergency Medical Treatment Form and bring the signed hard copy to the Center for International Studies.
Health Clearance Form
The ASU Center for International Studies Program (CISP) Health Clearance is a non-waivable requirement for participation. All students must comply with the health clearance requirement before departure and within stipulated deadlines.
Students who are not in compliance may face dismissal from their selected study abroad program. You should give the Confidential Health History Form to a physician/nurse prior to your examination.
Students may have the Health Clearance Form completed by consulting their personal physician or by contacting the ASU Health Clinic.
We are pleased to announce that ASU has launched a new comprehensive travel risk management program partnered with On Call International to provide you emergency and non-emergency services and benefits. The Global Assistance Program will provide services ranging from pre-trip planning to telephone advice to full-scale medical and security evacuations.
Key features of the new program:
- Medical, travel and security assistance, including insured evacuation and repatriation services
- Coordination of medical care
- Coordination and payment of travel arrangements for you or a person you designate for certain emergency circumstances
Before you travel
We suggest adding On Call International to the mobile phone you’ll be using abroad so you know how to contact them any time needed. Simply send a text message to the number 444-999 that says oncallttus, and you’ll receive a link to easily add a digital content card right into your phone contacts in just a few taps. It is not an app to download, just an easy way to make sure you have contact information available in case you need help while away from home. Regular text messaging rates may apply.
You can make a collect call, send an email or text On Call from anywhere in the world, 24 hours day, to request assistance. If you need medical care, encounter a travel problem, suffer a medical emergency, or are impacted by a security crisis anywhere in the world, we strongly encourage you to take advantage of services available through On Call.
All students, employee leaders and dependents (while traveling with employee leaders) are covered by this plan when outside their home country on ASU-related travel or assignment.
