International Health & Travel Insurance

International Health Insurance provided by Christopher Newport University for CNU Programs

Students participating in CNU Study Abroad group programs will be covered by a medical insurance policy administered by T.W. Lord & Associates for dates of the study abroad program.  Any student traveling before or after the program dates is encouraged to contact T.W. Lord & Associates to add additional travel days to their policy for an additional cost of $1 per day. This is basic health coverage of up to $100,000 in emergency medical and covers medical evacuation. Click Here to view the current policy.  We do not advise cancelling your current U.S. policy while you are abroad. Disruption of coverage could cause problems when reinstating.

Students studying abroad on an external program or exchange program can purchase the T.W. Lord & Associates insurance for $1 per day. Please contact T.W. Lord by phone or email.


Trip Cancellation Insurance

In addition to international health insurance, students are encouraged to research and decide if travel and trip cancellation insurance is a benefit they wish to purchase. This type of insurance can provide financial support for non-refundable expenses should your travel be interrupted, cancelled or delayed.  Some coverage will include loss or delay of baggage, lost or stolen goods, and additional add-ons. Please review each policy carefully for exclusions for coverage. 

CNU does not purchase travel insurance for students.  If a student withdraws or cancels participation, the refund policy is outlined by CNU for a CNU program.  If a student participates in an external or  exchange program, the refund policy is determined by the study abroad organization or university, not CNU.


Many External Study Abroad Organizations provide an international health insurance coverage as a part of the program fee.  If you are attending a program which does not include an insurance, you will need to purchase a coverage and show proof of coverage in your Enrollment Forms for CNU.
