The safety and welfare of our Merrimack students abroad is our top priority. 

Medical Coverage

Merrimack students are automatically enrolled in international health insurance coverage for their time abroad. Students on short-term programs are enrolled in HTH Worldwide Insurance Services. Students on semester programs are enrolled through their program provider.

Travel Documents

Students need to have a valid passport in order to participate in a global program. Semester program providers assist with the Visa application process. For general information on document requirements and visa application procedures, please visit the U.S. State Department website on travel

Please Note: Special provisions may apply to international students or non-U.S. citizens going abroad. Please check with the respective Consulate General of Embassy of the country where your passport is issued.

Security Updates

The Office of Global Education regularly monitors U.S. State Department travel warnings, and recommends that students and their parents also stay informed.
