= Liability =

Liability for an internship experience can vary depending on the circumstances of the internship. Normally when you are involved with an internship where remuneration is received, you are considered an employee of the organization with which you are interning. Employee status shields you from claims arising out of your assigned work. Internships where remuneration is not received fall into two categories: academic credit received and academic credit not received. The College carries insurance to cover claims arising out of an academic credit internship covering bodily injury or property damage. However, individual student liability is not covered. Students should consider obtaining a policy to cover their personal liability and/or check their homeowner insurance policy to see if it would cover their individual situation. No insurance is available for internships without academic credit.
