Info for Students

Scholastic Emergency Services is the nation’s premier provider of emergency assistance services designed specifically for your active student lifestyle. If you encounter any medical difficulty while traveling just 100 miles or more from home and/or campus*, SES is the lifeline you can depend on. One simple phone call activates our sophisticated network of emergency services on your behalf.


Medical Consultation & Referral – Our medical staff is available 24/7 to consult on your case and refer you to the best local doctors and facilities.

Emergency Medical Evacuation – If local medical care is not adequate, we will evacuate you to the nearest appropriate facility. We ensure you receive the best medical treatment anywhere in the world.

Critical Care Monitoring – If you are hospitalized, our medical team will remain in constant contact with you and your treating physicians.

Compassionate Visit – We will bring a family member or friend to be at your side during hospitalization.

Medical Repatriation – If you are incapable of traveling alone and need ongoing medical assistance following hospitalization, we will arrange for you to return home or to campus with a medical or non-medical escort as needed.

Prescription Assistance – We help you fill prescriptions while away from home.

Emergency Trauma Counseling – We offer telephone-based trauma counseling for critical incidents.

Legal and Interpreter Referrals – We provide referrals to local attorneys and interpreters.

Pre-trip Information – Our website offers detailed travel information for any destination.

Our services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year during the policy effective period. SES provides and pays fully for all assistance services we provide.

All services must be arranged and provided by SES. SES is a service provider, not an insurance policy. No claims for reimbursement will be accepted.

SES' services do not replace medical insurance during medical emergencies away from home. All medical costs incurred should be submitted to a student's health plan and are subject to the policy limits of the health insurance coverage.

*Students have access to selected services while on campus, such as medical referrals, emergency counseling, repatriation and return of mortal remains
