Theft Policy

While theft and/or unauthorized borrowing or conspiracy to commit theft is against College policy, Alma College does will not be held responsible for the theft or unauthorized borrowing of the personal property of any individual, including, but not limited to, students, guests/visitors, staff, and faculty.

While the college does not assume responsibility for losses incurred by students which may result from vandalism or theft, it will support actions taken against those persons responsible for such activities whether such action is commenced through the campus conduct system and/or by the local police.

Personal belongings of students are not covered under the college insurance policy. The college assumes no responsibility for personal property that is damaged or destroyed by theft, vandalism, fire, smoke, rain, wind, hail or water. Check with your homeowner’s insurance as to whether your belongings are insured. It is recommended that students procure their own renter’s insurance to protect their belongings in the case of damage or theft. Alma College is in full compliance with Section 485f of the Student Right-to-know and Campus Security Act of the Federal Government and annually makes available statistical information on campus crime.
