Certificates of Insurance Requests:
After reviewing your contract, the Office of Legal Affairs will determine if a certificate of insurance is needed. For a timely response from the University’s insurance agent and underwriter, we ask that you send contracts/agreements to the Office of Legal Affairs two weeks in advance of your request.
The request form for a Certificate of Insurance (COI) is available online. Requests for certificates of insurance should be forwarded to the Executive Assistant to the VP for Finance & Administration for processing.
To obtain a copy of the Verification of Coverage letter and for all other university insurance questions, please contact the Executive Assistant to the VP for Finance & Administration.
