Liability Insurance Verification

       Liability insurance is for your protection and is required for all field experiences.  During the course of your field experiences, you may encounter situations which could involve legal actions in which you could be held personally liable for damages. Liability insurance will provide protection for the vast majority of lawsuits and is mandatory before you enter the classroom.  Liability insurance can be obtained through a private insurance company or by purchasing through the Education Minnesota Student Program.  Student Program cost is $25 for the period September 1, 2014 to August 31, 2015.  Read carefully and select the correct year of coverage.

Education Minnesota Student Program Web Enrollment

Liability insurance can be purchased on-line using web-based enrollment.  A credit or debit card from Visa, MasterCard or Discover and access to a printer are needed.  The system is part of the National Education Association.  The web-based enrollment gives students the ability to apply for membership at any time, from any location, and the insurance becomes effective immediately.  If you need to pay by check, please contact the Clinical Experiences Office, EA 326.
