Student Internship Coverage
NAU students enrolled in approved University internship or externship programs and who are within the course and scope of their State-authorized activities, are provided professional and general liability coverage by the State of Arizona, Risk Management Division, under Arizona Revised Statute §41-621.A.3.
However, if the student intern is paid by the outside company or party as an employee while performing his/her NAU internship or externship program, the student intern would be covered under his/her employer’s insurance. The State’s coverage would apply only if the student was an unpaid intern.
