International Student Identity Card (ISIC)
The International Student Identity Card (ISIC) offers a variety of discounts and benefits on travel-related services and products. It also provides travel insurance and some limited emergency evacuation and repatriation benefits for student travelers. The Office of Global Strategies - CUAbroad is the only official issuing site on campus. CUAbroad also issues the International Teacher Identity Card (ITIC).
Here are some of the features of the ISIC card:
- Discounts at museums, train tickets, restaurants, and hostels all over the world
- Web and cell phone plan discounts overseas
- Travel insurance (includes 24 hour emergency assistance services, concierge services, and limited medical coverage)
- Baggage protection
- Travel document protection (copies of any important documents can be safely held for students in case access to them in needed while abroad).
CUAbroad no longer automatically issues International Student ID Cards to students going abroad. Anyone who wants an ISIC will be able to purchase one from our office for $25. Card processing time will be approximately 2 weeks, though the card number may be obtained earlier upon request.
