International Insurance for Students
Skidmore College has long supported students as they travel internationally for credit-bearing Skidmore Programs through Off-Campus Study & Exchanges, internships, research, service learning and volunteer opportunities, conferences, registered student organization activities, student groups affiliated with academic departments, and other non-credit-bearing Skidmore programs.
As with all other college-sponsored international travel, students must receive approval to travel through a sponsoring department (i.e. OCSE, Career Development Center, Athletics, etc.). The sponsoring department will then register approved student travel plans with Skidmore's Travel Registry (thereby securing global assistance and insurance for the student traveler).
On Call International is Skidmore's Global Assistance and Insurance Program provider for students traveling abroad. A Plan ID card, benefit information and other resources can be found on Skidmore’s custom On Call International Portal: https://mysearchlightportal.com/ (enter Group ID: 100092CPPD18).
