Cancel For Any Reason (CFAR)/Interupt For Any Reason (IFAR) Insurance

TAMU will not require you to purchase additional insurance; however, all students are strongly encouraged to purchase additional travel insurance that will cover you if your flight or program is canceled or if you are recalled to the U.S. because of COVID-19 since these events will not be covered by most international insurance policies, including the TAMU Education Abroad international policy. Additionally, TAMU will not be reimbursing those costs or refunding Education Abroad fees. You may also wish to search for additional coverage for other risks not covered by TAMU’s current international insurance policy or the policy utilized by your provider if on a non-TAMU program.

We recommend that you thoroughly read the plan you are considering and review the fine print closely. Many policies may have a “pandemic exclusion.” Look for plans that allow you to cancel for any reason, often called Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) or Interrupt for Any Reason (IFAR) plans.
