Immediately report all accidents to the instructor, supervisor, or person in charge. All accidents must be reported to Health Services as soon as possible. An accident report is required to substantiate an insurance claim. Contact Health Services or athletic trainer for insurance reporting forms and information.
- Students enrolled and registered while attending regularly scheduled classes at college; or while attending college, supervised, and administratively approved activities, including club activities, or traveling under college supervision to and from college-sponsored events.

The completion of a formal accident report form is necessary for all injuries and/or accidents that occur on-campus and/or off-campus during a college-sponsored activity.
The completion of the accident form is assigned to the instructor, supervisor, or person in charge. Please inform student/non-employee that the completion of an accident report form is not a claim for insurance. However, if an insurance claim is necessary, the student/non-employee should be directed to Health Services.
Written notice of claim must be submitted within 120 days after the date of the accidental injury.
