Insurance follows the car. Your personal policy pays. ISU's auto policy provides excess liability coverage over and above your own liability coverage, if that should become necessary. It does not cover property damage.
There is a $500 deductible for collision involving University owned or leased vehicles. The deductible is charged back to the department if our driver was at fault.
In the event of windshield breakage or other comprehensive claims (i.e. hitting a deer), the responsible department/individual will be charged the deductible amount of $100 for damages to the vehicle.
Students may drive University vehicles as part of their job function. However, they must first successfully complete the Driver Safety course. Additional restrictions may apply.
United Educators’ Driver Safety course is offered at no charge to faculty, staff, and student workers who need to drive University-owned, leased, or rented vehicles on University business. This course takes approximately one hour to complete and can be taken at your convenience.
To complete the course you will need to follow the Instructions for Online Courses to register.
No. The University recognizes the increased liability involved with 15 passenger van rollover accidents and will NOT provide coverage for their use under any circumstances.
ISU's property insurance has a $100,000 deductible. (See Property Insurance page for exception.)
Universities nationwide require non-university affiliated groups to provide proof of insurance coverage. ISU requires a minimum $1,000,000 general liability coverage naming Indiana State University/Board of Trustees as “additional insured.” (Sample Certificate) This protects the University from losses that do not involve University personnel.
The University can not insure personal property. Please take care to secure valuable items and check your homeowner's policy to see if it provides coverage.
Students are not insured through the University. Students should have their own health insurance or be covered under their parents’ policy. If coverage is needed, the UAP Clinic – ISU Health Center can provide information on student health coverage at http://www.indstate.edu/shc/
