Study abroad



To better safeguard Marquette students traveling abroad, OIE adopted a comprehensive insurance package, mandatory for all students studying abroad with academic programs or traveling overseas in conjunction with Marquette academic course work. The insurance is offered through GeoBlue (formerly HTH Worldwide), a leading student international insurance provider.

The mandatory insurance plan covers accidents and medical expenses up to $500,000 with no network limitations. Brochures detailing the provisions under the Marquette policy can be obtained at the Office of International Education, or downloaded.

OIE facilitates all student enrollments in GeoBlue. The cost is $38 per 30-day period. Charges for the length of a student's program will be posted to the student's Marquette bursar account (Checkmarq). Students who would like to extend their coverage pre- or post-program should visit GeoBlue’s website. Specific instructions can be found here. Note that the price and coverage of the pre- and/or post-program insurance will vary from that of the Marquette plan.

Students will automatically be enrolled in GeoBlue insurance for the dates of their study abroad program. This insurance is required for all students studying abroad and will be billed to students through their Checkmarq account. This insurance cannot be waived. There are some programs or countries that also have insurance requirements or automatic enrollment; however, the GeoBlue policy will still be required for students for continuity of health and safety response.
