Student interns while student teaching or interning as part of their educational requirements who are not receiving compensation from any business or institution to which they are assigned are provided coverage for third party liability claims only. Coverage is not provided for students’ own bodily injuries or damage to or theft of their personal property. The State Office of Risk Management suggests that student interns be mandated to carry adequate health and accident insurance before allowed to take a course where an internship is required by the course curriculum.
If a student’s injury is due to the university, college, or school’s negligence, coverage will be provided by the CGL self-insurance policy.
