Student, Teacher & Youth International Identification and Travel Insurance Cards (ISIC or ITIC cards)
The Global Engagement Office is a local issuer of this official student identification card. The ISIC Card proves your student status wherever in the world you go. It allows you access to over 150,000 student discounts and offers in 130 countries. It not only will help you save money both here in the US or abroad but it is also your travel insurance. ISIC offers two travel insurance plans - basic ($25) and premium ($100), both of which are good for one entire year. Please see the attached document below for more information and details about the coverage. Please visit the official website for more details.
There is also the ITIC card for full-time teachers, university staff, and faculty members. It offers the same benefits and at the same costs. If you are a faculty/staff member leading an Asbury group abroad, for every 10 students, you receive one card for free.
For non-students and non-educators, there is also the IYTC card for anyone 30 years old or younger. If you don't fit in any of these categories, STA Travels is able to provide individual travel insurance that is based on a percentage of cost of your travels. Non AU-members (or family members) that travels with Asbury staff or faculty members may fall into this category.
To apply for your card, please see the attached document below. Fill out the form and submit it to the Global Engagement Office. You can either send a photo or we can take your photo for you. Please email email@example.com to make an appointment.
*Please note that if you are participating in an Asbury-led trip abroad, you have to be covered by some form of travel insurance. If you choose not to use ISIC, you must submit proof of another provider.
