Travel Insurance

All persons traveling abroad on international trips are required to purchase CISI insurance. Please note that this applies to trips through any UofL affiliation; CISI will not cover personal time.

Policy details 

CISI insurance

Registration Information 

CISI insurance is available for purchase at the International Center, Brodschi Hall in person or by phone (502-852-0374), Monday-Friday 9-4. In either case, you will be asked to provide basic information for registration. Please see below for payment information.

Once insurance payment has been made, our office will enroll the traveler in CISI insurance. The traveler will then receive an email from CISI with further instructions. 

If you do not receive notification within 48 hours check your SPAM folder for a CISI email. If you do not find the email in your SPAM folder, contact .

Note: Students studying abroad with AIFS, KIIS or USAC do not have to purchase UofL's CISI policy, as they have comparable CISI coverage included in their program fee.

CISI Cost 

$16.95 per week or $67.80 per month, which includes 5 free days.

You may call us or use this date duration calculator to calculate your total and to decide which rate is better for your trip. 

Payment Options

Payment options will vary based on your role in the University and your trip purpose. Please read each option carefully.

1. Individual Travelers : Payment accepted only through Cardinal Cash.

Please see the Cardinal Cash Page for information on how to add funds to your Cardinal Card. While this payment method is most common for students, faculty and staff may also pay via Cardinal Cash (their Employee ID card).

Once funds have been added, CISI may be purchased in the International Center in person or by phone.

2. Faculty/Staff Trips: Payment may be made through the on-line form found on the Provost's International Travel page where department funds are available. This on-base form replaces an IUT/JV for faculty/staff trips; if you are not eligible to pay by IUT/JV, please follow above instructions to pay via Cardinal Cash.

3. Faculty-Led Group Trips: Payment may be submitted via JV when funds have been included in the program cost.

For payments via JV please complete this spreadsheet for registration.  Large groups of faculty/staff can also submit payment using this method, but only in cases where the speedtype is the same for all travelers members.
