Emergency Info

Wellesley College Travel Assist Program

Please visit the Office of Risk Management's webpage for student travel abroad for further information. 

The Travel Assist Program does not replace individual health insurance but rather provides supplemental coverage. 

All travelers are also strongly encouraged to enroll in the US State Department's Smart Traveler Enrollment Program in order to receive advisories and alerts relevant to their study abroad plans.

In case of emergency, students participating in academic study abroad programs administered or approved by Wellesley College should first follow the emergency instructions provided by their study abroad program and/or host institution. Should students require additional assistance they should:

  • After hours, call Campus Police: 781-283-2121, to be connected to the staff member on call

3. Inform Primary Insurance Carrier

  • The student, or the student's emergency contact, is responsible for informing her primary insurance carrier.
