GW requires students to secure sufficient health insurance coverage for the duration of their travel abroad. To satisfy this requirement, students must purchase health insurance through GW’s partner, GeoBlue. This will give you access to GeoBlue’s vast network of doctors and hospitals abroad, as well as medical referrals and country-specific health and safety information. Once a student’s international travel proposal is approved, the student will have access to the GeoBlue insurance enrollment website.
