Certificates of Insurance

A certificate of insurance (COI), is a standard document used to validate the existence of an insurance policy. The certificate provides verification of the insurance and usually contains information on types and limits of coverage, the name of the insured party, the name of the insurance company, the policy number, etc. A certificate provides proof a party can satisfy financial obligations assumed under a contract.

Obtain a Certificate

The insurance information provided below is based on the insurance coverage currently carried by the university. Wright State University has discontinued providing paper certificates, as the contract and Ohio law guide insurance coverage. Third parties who contract with Wright State may access proof of insurance for general and auto liability, property, and student internship/practicum liability coverage.

In the event the above proof of insurance will not suffice, an individual COI will only be issued when all of the following conditions are met:

  • There is a written agreement or contract between the university and a third party; and
  • The contract requests a certificate; and
  • The contract is signed by the appropriate personnel at the university; and
  •  The COI's above aren't sufficient due to other contractual requirements within a contract.

To request a COI, complete and submit the Certificate of Insurance form.
