If you pilot a personal or a rented aircraft, you should be aware of the University's policy for using this mode of transportation when conducting University business. The employee piloting an aircraft — while permitted with authorization — is not a recommended mode of travel.
However, if you find it necessary to travel by private airplane, here's what you need to do:
- Get approval. You must have approval from your dean/vice provost or director.
- File a Certificate of Liability Insurance. At least 10 business days before taking off, you MUST file with the UM Office of Risk & Insurance Management a certificate of aviation liability insurance showing the Curators of the University of Missouri as an additional insured with minimum limits of $5,000,000 per seat from a carrier with an A.M. BEST rating of A-, VIII and complete a pilot history form.
- Get insurance. Because the university will not be responsible for damage to the aircraft, it is recommended that you arrange for physical damage (hull coverage) insurance in all cases.
The Business Policy Manual addresses this mode of transportation in Section 504. For questions regarding this policy, please contact Risk & Insurance Management.

Student Health Insurance Plan
The UM System believes it is important that students have insurance while they pursue their studies in the event of an unexpected illness or injury.
Through a competitive bid process, the university is able to offer a program that adequately covers its students and meets the following goals:
- Provides reasonable financial security for students in case of serious illness or accident;
- Offers good benefits at a competitive cost;
- Complies with the US Federal law – Affordable Care Act (i.e., no maximums on essential health benefits, no cost share for preventive care, removal of pre-existing limitations);
- Meets J-1 visa requirements; and
- Includes medical evacuation, repatriation, etc. – not a standard offering in health insurance plans.
While there are lower cost options and short-term plans available in the marketplace, many of them do not meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act and have several limitations (i.e., will not cover pre-existing limitations, do not have unlimited maximums and have several exclusions).
Health care in the US is very different than health care in other countries. Many countries have a universal health program in place and the cost of care is much less than in the US. Similar to other universities, enrollment in the plan is required for international students (unless the student is eligible for a waiver).
The UM System’s student insurance program is reviewed each year to make sure it offers the best program for its needs at a competitive price. Research shows that when comparing the UM System’s plan to other universities in the Urban 13 and SEC, the benefits are competitive while the premium is lower than most. In addition, the university periodically markets the plan to make sure we keep the plan competitive
The university provides access to an individual student insurance plan. The program is available to any registered student of the University and offers spouse and dependent coverage for additional premiums. You can obtain further information by visiting https://student.anthem.com/student and selecting “Student” and entering Missouri in the “Where is your school name” search to get the college selection to see plan details for your campus.
- Reporting Claims: Claims should be filed with Anthem Student Advantage. Please refer to the Web site or call customer service at 1-833-332-0798.

Guideline on Student or Other Participant International Travel or Study Abroad
In an effort to foster the health, safety and security of its students and other participants, the University of Missouri reviews how, when and where students may travel or study abroad and considers issues of terrorism, war, disease and other risks to travelers. Accordingly, the universities observe the following practice: if the U.S. Department of State issues a travel advisory level 3 (reconsider travel) or 4 (do not travel) for a particular country or region and/or the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issues a level 3 warning international travel or study abroad programs may be suspended or canceled for our students of any nationality in that site while the advisory is in effect. In addition, the university may at its discretion consider additional sources of information including but not limited to travel advisories from other countries, information from the World Health Organization (WHO) and other relevant material and advice in making decisions to cancel or suspend international travel or study abroad programs. Each campus administration should formally review travel advisories and CDC travel notices for countries or regions with current or proposed travel or study abroad programs to determine if program suspension or cancelation is warranted. If a student or participant chooses to study in one of these countries or regions against the advice of the university, he/she may not have access to university support, resources or facilities during that time.
The University of Missouri does not support study abroad programs to countries or regions for which U.S. Department of State have issued travel advisories level 3 or 4 or U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention level 3 warning without a review of whether or not the advisory impacts the risks associated with the programs.
Reference: CRR 210.070
Travel Advisory from the State Department
The Department of State has launched new Travel Advisories and Alerts to make it easier for U.S. citizens to access clear, timely, and reliable safety and security information about every country in the world.
