Student Accident Insurance
Student accident insurance coverage is available, upon request, to University of Alaska students by direct application to our insurance carrier for this type of coverage. This insurance covers accidental injuries occurring during the insured period but does NOT cover personal health or sickness. The coverage is excess to other insurance available to the student. In other words, this insurance policy will cover expenses after other policies an injured student may qualify for under the student's personal insurance, spouse's insurance, or parent's insurance have been exhausted .
Coverage is only available for University of Alaska programs that are:
- University scheduled;
- University sponsored; and
- University supervised (by UA staff member)
Print out the Student Accident Insurance Brochure which describes the general terms and conditions of the policy and contact information. A brochure needs to be given to or made available to all students who have enrolled for coverage .
