Student Accident Insurance Policy
In addition to the services provided by the Student Health Center, your health fee includes accident insurance coverage for you while you are attending classes, or college-sponsored activities which are authorized and supervised. This is a secondary insurance, which means you must submit any claims to your private insurance before this policy applies. If you sustain an injury which you think may be coered, it should be reported to the supervising college employee immediately and then to Health Services within 24 hours or as soon as possible.
