Health / Immunizations for International Travel
If you are traveling internationally but will miss your program's mandatory Healthy Traveler Meeting (faculty will communicate the schedule to students), you may instead see the FLC Health Center Staff individually or contact San Juan Basin Health Department regarding immunizations, etc.
IMPORTANT: take page 3 of your registration paperwork (the Health Acknowledgement) to this appointment and be sure to obtain the healthcare provider's signature at bottom of form. After you too have signed the form, immediately deliver it to Continuing Education.
CE's BEST RECOMMENDATION: International Student Identity Card (ISIC) and a supplemental travel insurance plan.

Note: Insurance is not provided through FLC Continuing Education, students must obtain from independent provider. Scroll to bottom of page for links to a few companies.

The Office of Continuing Education strongly advises Innovative Month students to purchase at the minimum, basic accident and sickness insurance.Without this coverage, fiscal responsibility for any unforeseen problems students experience will rest solely on the student and/or the family/parents of that student. Fort Lewis College, its officers, faculty, employees and agents (collectively Fort Lewis College) is held harmless from any and all liability that may arise from student participation in any Innovative Month program.
