The University of Washington’s self-insurance program provides protection from liability claims arising from the negligent acts or omissions of the University of Washington and its employees, students, and agents acting in the course and scope of their University duties. Coverage is subject to the terms of RCW 28B20.250 et seq. and Board of Regents Governance Chapter 5. The term “agent” includes volunteers to official University programs.

If you are from a credentialing company, please see our memo.

Confirmation of coverage is available through the forms or links on this page within seven days. Please do not send multiple requests because this slows processing time.
