Student Internship Insurance

EWU students who are participating in an internship, practicum, clinical, field study, or similar activity may be required to have Professional Liability insurance.  This insurance helps ensure that students are protected against liability claims that may arise out of their internship activities.

Most internship insurance costs are charged as a separate course fee. 

Course fee amounts vary but are designed to equate to approximately $18 per student for the academic year.
Certificates of insurance will be available to students through their academic departments.
Questions or concerns should be directed to the Risk Manager at 509-359-6618 or email to:

NOTE: Because most internship insurance is collected through a course fee, please do not purchase optional insurance through the EWU Marketplace unless you are instructed to do so by your academic department.  If your academic department does instruct you to purchase insurance on your own, you may purchase the insurance here:

Insurance Terms and Coverage Limits

Each student intern who is required to have insurance or who elects to have insurance must pay for their insurance coverage. To reduce insurance costs and increase efficiency and accountability, the University works with the Department of Enterprise Services to obtain blanket insurance policies.

The limits of liability under the master policy are:

$1 million per occurrence with a $3 million per school annual aggregate for non-medical student interns.

Coverage is limited to the insurance policy terms, conditions and exclusions.
