When a personally-owned vehicle is used in the course of University business, the owner's insurance is always primary. As the University's insurance is secondary, the operation of a personally-owned vehicle, including who qualifies as an authorized driver, is subject to all the rules, regulations, and procedures applicable to a University vehicle. Deductibles and other expenses not covered by the owner's personal policy will not be reimbursed by the University.
Qualifications to Operate a University Vehicle can be found on our "Policies & Procedures" page.
