Certificate of Insurance Requests

The University is often required to send out a Certificate of Insurance in order to verify some aspect of the University's insurance program. All requests must flow through Risk Management, allowing us to review the request and notify the University's insurance broker, if appropriate, to issue the certificate.

The University's insurance broker will not issue a Certificate of Insurance unless authorized by Risk Management.

Please submit requests for certificates as early as possible. Don't wait until the day they are due, as we may be unavailable or our broker may be tied up, or the first certificate issued may need revisions and may have to be reissued, causing further delay and possibly holding up operations on your end.

Risk Management will arrange for the issuance of certificates when required for University use of outside facilities or the rental of vehicles. The following information must be provided in order to require a certificate:

  • Name of outside organization
  • Point of contact at organization
  • Address
  • Telephone number
  • Fax number (must be provided)
  • Purpose of certificate
  • Dates certificate is to be in effect
  • Limits required (if specified)
  • Whether Certificate Holder is to be named an Additional Insured

When the required information is provided, it is generally possible to have the certificate faxed to the recipient within 48 hours.
