No. Students ARE required to provide proof of health insurance coverage during the enrollment process. However, each student is responsible for securing their own international health insurance and is responsible for personal medical expenses incurred while on tour. Up with People will provide insurance options to consider.

No. The academic credit offered through the partnership with FSC is a program only available to students in our July 2012 program and after. The credit is earned for specific university courses taken during the semester. We encourage students who traveled in the UWP program prior to July 2012 to work with their home university to seek independent study credit or consider enrollment at one of our affiliate universities to take advantage of their unique credit offers for UWP alumni. See previous question as well.
Yes! Please notify Up with People staff traveling with your student at least one month prior to your scheduled visit. We will assist you in making proper arrangements to ensure smooth operations of the program. All travel, hotel, and meal expenses are the responsibility of the visiting guest(s). Special circumstances may allow you time with your student away from the scheduled tour activities. However, this is subject to approval.
We’ve missed you! Come see us on tour! We love having our alumni in the audience….even better, as host families, sponsors or volunteering alongside our current students. To see where Up with People will be traveling over the next few months, check out our Tour Schedule.
With just one cast touring at a time, the scope of locations UWP can travel to each year is more limited compared to before the year 2000. We regularly tour within the USA, Mexico, Europe and Asia but are always open to exploring tour opportunities in every part of the world. Our alumni play a huge role in creating opportunities for tour sponsorships. If you are interested in working with Up with People to bring a student group to your city, contact Paul Whitaker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
