Intercollegiate Athletic Student Accident Insurance

Summary of Coverage

The Intercollegiate Athletic Student Accident Insurance program provides coverage for student-athletes, student managers, student trainers, student coaches and student cheerleaders for bodily injuries sustained while participating in athletic competitions that are authorized, sanctioned or scheduled by the College for approved sporting programs. This includes College-supervised practices, game-related activities, off-season conditioning and related, covered travel.

Coverage also extends to prospective athletes (same benefits and limits as regular student-athletes) and their named chaperon(s) (up to $10,000) while they are visiting the College or any facility to which they are invited by a College official.

Claims are paid in excess of any other available insurance. If the student-athlete does not have his or her own medical insurance, the policy pays on a primary basis.
