Travel Assistance while Studying Abroad

Through CSU’s student insurance provider, Aetna Student Health, emergency medical emergency assistance is available for all full-time students traveling 100 miles or more away from home or campus. Among other things, this benefit includes emergency referral, hospital admission guarantee, translation services, and emergency evacuation. This service is not insurance; students must have their own medical coverage that is valid outside the country. Part-time students are eligible only if they are insured by Aetna Student Health.
