Summer Institute Health Insurance Coverage

Fordham Law strongly recommends that all Summer Institute participants arrange for health insurance coverage for their time in the United States.  Participants are encouraged to check with their current provider to see if coverage extends to their stay in New York.

Participants who are not covered are strongly urged to purchase insurance.  Please note that participants are not automatically covered by Fordham University's health insurance, and may be held liable for any emergency medical expenses they incur during their time in the United States.

International participants are invited to purchase basic health insurance coverage offered through Collegiate Insurance Resources via Fordham University's Office for International Services.  The enrollment form for 2015 is not yet available; prices have not yet been adjusted for 2015.  (For reference, the total cost for coverage for 2014 was $62.00.)  For information on benefits and coverage, participants should contact Malinda Townsend at 610-537-9461.

Please note that this coverage is only available to international, or "non-immigrant" students.  This coverage is not available to U.S. citizens, resident aliens, or permanent residents.
