From time to time various institutions, organizations, or companies request Proof of Liability Coverage from the university. The JMU Risk Management office prepares and signs all Certificates of Coverage. The Certificate of Coverage states coverage limits under the State Risk Management

Examples of why an entity outside of the university might require or request a Certificate of Coverage:

  • Hospitals and other Institutions providing placement for student practicum, internships and other professional placements as required degree coursework, requesting proof of professional and/or medical liability coverage for our students.
  • Car or other rental agencies requesting proof of our liability coverage, should the car become damaged.
  • Off-campus locations where the university is participating in or holding an event (i.e. Sporting Events such as NCAA tournaments, off-campus athletic or theatrical events, competitions and practices, informational booths and programs held at off-campus locations).

To request a Certificate of Insurance, please complete the Certificate of Coverage on-line form.

  • Purpose of the certificate (name of event or activity for which the certificate is requested).

When the above information is received, the JMU Risk Management office drafts a certificate using the standard Certificate of Insurance Coverage form approved and provided by the State.
