Student Professional Liability Insurance Fee - Executive Order Number 986

Attached is a copy of Executive Order Number 986, which establishes a Category III Student Professional Liability Insurance fee for allied health, nursing or education programs that include a practicum, fieldwork or student teaching experience. This policy supersedes any other student liability insurance program currently being used by a campus.

CSU Risk Management Authority will bill each campus for their total premium deposit, based on student enrollment numbers provided by Analytic Studies. The fee authorized by this Executive Order may be charged to recover that cost, but is not required. The fee can only be charged to students who will be covered by this policy.

In accordance with policy of the California State University, the campus president has responsibility for implementing executive orders where applicable and for maintaining the campus repository and index for all executive orders.
