Certificate of Insurance

A Certificate of Insurance (COI) documents the existence and terms of insurance coverage.  The purpose of a COI is to provide evidence that a party can satisfy various obligations such as paying liability losses it has assumed under contract, paying workers' compensation benefits due its employees, or paying for loss or damage to property for which it is responsible.  COIs are for informational use only and are not considered a legal document.

University Risk Management prepares and/or provides Certificates of Insurance to document the University’s insurance.  A campus department or covered individual may request a COI by completing a Certificate of Insurance Request Form.

University Risk Management is also happy to provide assistance in reviewing COIs provided to the University by other parties.
