International Student Identification Card
The Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) issues The International Student Identity Card (ISIC). The ISIC costs around $22 and offers benefits such as low airfares and worldwide discounts for everything from museums to hotels to public transportation. The premium ISIC costs $75 and offers special discounts and additional insurance coverage including personal property insurance coverage. It is the world’s most widely accepted student identity card and is issued in over 90 countries to almost two million students as year. For more information, go to http://www.isic.org. This card is not required but highly recommended because it provides coverage for personal items (i.e. laptop). The Study Abroad Office will assist students with the purchase of the cards. If purchased in the United States, the card also carries with it a supplemental insurance policy, which can prove very helpful in the event of serious injury. Please keep in mind that the insurance coverage provided with this card is not sufficient for the requirements set forth by UWF.
