If participating in a semester- or year-long program you will have both CISI insurance through UW System and German health insurance through Hessen. Both are mandatory and both policies offer a unique set of insurance coverage; the CISI policy extends well beyond standard health insurance.

If participating in a short-term program you have German health insurance included for free in the program. You should familiarize yourself with the details of your CISI insurance coverage.



Further information for incoming students can be found in the  Incoming Student Manual.
