Auburn University's Office of International Programs carefully reviews all travel alerts issued by the U.S. Department of State for specific regions or countries where security issues are a concern. Decisions about sending or withdrawing students from areas with travel alerts will be made in the context of current world situations and after consulting with responsible officials of foreign host universities, overseas providers, the U.S. Department of State, AU administrators, and other experts who are well-informed on issues related to the region in question. Auburn University also reserves the right to cancel any program when we believe the security of AU students may be threatened.
Auburn University will not send students to any country for which a U.S. Department of State Travel Warning has been issued unless approved by the AU Risk Assessment Committee.
Students interested in studying abroad in any country with a Travel Warning (including pre-approved programs) must submit a Request for Waiver of the Auburn University Travel Warning Policy. Please contact Auburn Abroad for further details.

This insurance plan is accepted by hospitals abroad where many domestic insurance plans are not. Detailed coverage information can be found in each student's online application.
