If you are a first-time traveler, OSU offers insurance through ACE Executive Assistance Services at no charge to individuals traveling internationally. This insurance is available to faculty traveling internationally on professional business even if no university funds are being used. To get insurance in this case, fill out the travel form as normal putting in 0.00 for all estimated expenses and "Travel is at no expense to the University" in the Other Comments section. The university no longer provides insurance to spouses of OSU employees.
