All faculty, staff, and students traveling abroad for Temple affiliated international travel are covered by International SOS, a 24-hour travel assistance program. ISOS membership is provided by Temple University and is administered by ISOS. This medical and security assistance program provides emergency response, as well as online services and travel information. Coverage is provided to all members of the Temple community on a blanket basis and the service does not require individual sign up. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to visit Temple University’s membership page on the International SOS website to familiarize themselves with the services provided and how to activate coverage in the event of an emergency. The University, its trustees, employees, agents, subsidiaries or affiliates, are not responsible for the quality of any services provided by International SOS.
Furthermore, Temple University students, faculty and staff traveling abroad on registered Temple sanctioned international travel will be covered by Temple's international travel medical insurance plan, administered by International SOS. Coverage by International SOS as well as the medical insurance plan applies to registered Temple affiliated travel (see More information in this section) and does require registration in the International SOS "MyTrips" registry.
