How to use HTH Insurance
One thing we have learned from returning students is that no matter how extensive the pre-program sessions and final orientations are, there are still things they wished we had covered more thoroughly before they left the U.S. This meeting is an attempt to prepare you as best we can. Our goal is for you to have the best cultural and educational experience possible, with as little surprise, disappointment, and/or inconvenience as possible. Your responsibility is to follow these guidelines, research everything further, make the best out of this opportunity, and always use good judgment.
HTH insurance – Carry your card and number with you throughout the trip. Call the number on the card if you have any medical problems.
HTH does NOT cover care needed due to alcohol intoxication.
Australia Internship Summer 2014
Contact Cards - Carry these with you everywhere you go. Put them in your wallet; pack them in your carry-on luggage when you fly over. Note that beginning numbers vary depending on from where you are calling. Leave a copy of both the cards with your parents.
Passports – Very valuable. Handle as you would your credit card. Do not take it out at night with you. Carry a copy with you in the evening.
Flight spreadsheet – Check for accuracy. Let our office know of any changes!
Look over your flight plans spread sheet. Let Kim know if your flight plans change!
If contacting Kim, have new arrival information ready to tell her.
Pack in your carry-on: Airline ticket, your passport, emergency contact cards, HTH Insurance card, and the packet provided for you this evening.
These are required for the program so bring your laptop.
Prescriptions and customs -
If you are bringing any prescription drugs keep them in the original bottle/package. If you need injections, bring your own syringes.
Textbooks and packets-
bring them with you.
Register with American Embassies
You will have the opportunity to transfer dollars to local currency upon arrival.
A credit card in your name. Call the company and give them the dates and locations of your trip.
Have a debit card (memorize your numerical pin). Call your bank and have it set up for international use.
You may want to bring these as a back-up.
It is best to bring your own. Contact your cell phone provider to set up for international calls. MUST HAVE A WORKING PHONE WHEN IN Australia.
At Dallas Forth Worth International airport:
DEPARTURE DAY IS HERE!!!
Check in with Dr. Greenlee once you get to DFW.
Be prepared to sit in the airport for a while for everyone to arrive.
If your connecting flight is delayed, contact Dr. Greenlee or Dr. Barr, Senior Director of the International Programs Office. She will be on call. Provide new arrival information. Their phone numbers will be on your emergency card as well as in your packet on the itinerary.
If your flight is late and the group has left for Australia, please book another flight. You will be responsible for paying for this second flight to Australia unless you booked the add-on option with Student Universe.
Communication is key: Contact Dr. Greenlee or Dr. Barr right away if you miss your flight. Have the new flight information ready.
Everyone must check in with Dr. Greenlee once at DFW! If we don’t see and have not heard from you, your emergency contact will be called. Do not upset your mom!

Ambassadors for Miami University
Note: These rules and expectations begin as you get to the airport.
We use a provider in Australia, AIIA, and students are subject to all AIIA rules and requirements while on this program. These expectations will be covered at the on-site orientation once in Australia led by an AIIA representative. In case of conflict about Miami University’s standards of conduct and the provider’s conduct code, the provider’s code prevails.
You are subject to the laws of every country you visit. Miami University takes no responsibility for the consequences of actions you may take in violation of local laws. Miami University cannot assure that U.S. standards of due process will be followed, nor will the University provide or pay for legal representation.
Miami University students in overseas programs are also subject to all applicable University rules, to the Miami University Code of Conduct in the Student Handbook, and to such other rules as the faculty or staff may find necessary to the proper functioning of the program. The proscriptions stated in the Academic Misconduct are fully applicable, and violations of them will not be tolerated.
Alcohol – If you choose to drink alcohol while on the program, and your behavior becomes disruptive as outlined in the regulations, you will be held subject to disciplinary actions under the Student Conduct Regulations. This could include dismissal from the program WITH NO REFUND.
Use good judgment, have fun, and learn all that you can about Australia and the courses you are taking.
