Student Liability and Malpractice Insurance

Occasionally an agency will require a student to purchase liability insurance in order to be eligible for an internship with its organization.  This requirement usually pertains to Human Services and Psychology majors.  Although it is expected that a student will obtain this coverage independent of the College, they may request that the costs for this coverage be applied to their financial aid request as an educational expense.

To obtain liability insurance, students must first join the professional organization that governs their major (the American Counseling Association if you are a Human Services major or the American Psychological Association if you are a Psychology major).  Students will simultaneously submit an application form for liability insurance coverage through the same organization.

Following are the procedures for obtaining liability insurance:
