A Certificate of Insurance is a document that evidences specific insurance coverage. The Certificate provides verification of the insurance and contains information on an insured's policies including; limits of coverage, insurance company name, policy number, named insured, additional insured, the policy effective/term dates, etc. A certificate is provided to third parties who require it in the course of doing business with the insured party.
Certificates are usually requested by opposite parties in an agreement, contract, or transaction to make certain the other party has the appropriate insurance coverage. A sample Certificate of Insurance can be viewed by clicking here.
The College's insurance requirements for third parties can be found by clicking here. However, the requirements are subject to change depending on the scope of work.
