Liability Insurance

All students participating in a field experience in a P-12 setting must be covered by professional liability insurance.

You must apply for liability insurance prior to your first field experience and reapply every August until completion of the teacher preparation program.

  • Visit Education Minnesota to see details of student benefits, which include liability insurance. For each year you are a student member, your professional membership will be discounted once you are a teacher.

Other options for professional liability insurance include:

  • Professional liability insurance from the Association of American Educators. Visit to see details of student member benefits. Submit a copy of member verification.
  • If you are covered for professional liability in a school setting from another insurance provider, please provide a copy of the insurance card and section of policy indicating your coverage.
