Enter the web site by following these instructions:

  1. Download the UD SOS membership card (requires CAS login). The card contains UD’s group membership number.
  2. Go to
  3. Enter UD’s group membership number (from step 1 above)
  4. You should now be on UD’s SOS portal page welcoming University of Delaware members and should be able to explore the site.


Specific SOS membership services for UD employees and students can be found on this site, and include, but are not limited to, emergency evacuation and repatriation of mortal remains, medical and personal assistance (for example legal referrals and translation services), and online services. Note that SOS is not a health insurance provider and that no health insurance coverage is included among SOS’s services. Therefore, University staff and students are highly encouraged to investigate their own health insurance coverage before traveling abroad.
