All university employees, including student and temporary employees, are covered under the Workers' Compensation Act. Each campus administers this program locally.

webpage for more information.
A workers' compensation claim must be filed when an employee has an on-the-job injury or illness (OJI) which requires medical attention away from the work site or for which the employee will be missing time from work under doctor's orders.
The university self-insures Workers' Compensation coverage and contracts with a third-party, Cannon Cochran Management Systems, Inc.(CCMSI), to oversee, manage, coordinate and approve the treatment provided to university employees.
