The Office of International Programs and Study Abroad provides UTEP students with the opportunity to enhance their educational experience and gain global experience by participating in any number of international study programs.
UTEP requires that study abroad/away participants obtain medical, evacuation and repatriation insurance, for the duration of their overseas program. To that aim, UTEP provides medical and security coverage through the UT System statewide contract with Student International Travel Accident and Sickness Insurance (SITASI) and On Call International.
UTEP students traveling internationally on University-sanctioned travel are provided with $200,000 worth of injury and illness medical insurance through the ACE American Insurance Company
SITASI will pay Medical Expense Benefits for Covered Expenses that result directly from, and not from any other cause, a Covered Accident or Sickness. These benefits are subject to the Deductible, Co-insurance Rate, Maximum Benefit Period, Benefit Maximum, and other terms or limits shown in the Policy. For detail information, refer to the brochure below.SITASI Brochure 2018
