Professional Liability Insurance

Beginning in your sophomore year, you will be charged $14.50 per year for professional liability insurance. You will receive a Bursar's bill only once a year for coverage for the entire calendar year. Professional Liability Insurance protects you from loss against a claim of alleged negligent acts in your professional role when you work or volunteer in settings with infants, young children, adolescents, adults, the elderly or families. It does not cover you if you are found guilty of an illegal act (for example, child abuse or corporal punishment). It does cover you, however, if a child or adult is accidently injured while under your supervision. For specific information on the amount of coverage your policy provides, please contact Auburn University Risk Management at 844-4533.
