If you are a student participating on an SMU Abroad program, the insurance is listed with the program fees. SMU Abroad will automatically submit your information to the insurance company. You do not need to complete any paperwork to be enrolled in the policy. You will  receive a copy of a letter of enrollment, the insurance policy brochure and an insurance card in your SMU email prior to the start of the program. 

If you are planning to travel before or after the program and would like additional coverage contact ACE Insurance Group directly to sign up for additional days. Students are responsible for paying any additional coverage beyond the duration of the academic program.

If you are a SMU faculty or staff member going overseas on SMU business, you are required to sign up for ACE international health insurance through the Office of Risk Management website.
