Safe Study or Travel Abroad


Boston College provides BC students, faculty and staff who study or travel abroad with international health and emergency services assistance, managed and administered by GeoBlue.  Note:  You must register with BC Risk Management before you travel to receive benefits.

BC's Office of International Programs regularly monitors State Department travel advisories and consular information sheets, and recommends that students and their parents also keep themselves informed. In addition to State Department warnings, students may also obtain information from respective U.S. Embassy/Consulates abroad.
