Campus Accident Insurance

Santa Barbara City College has a secondary policy to cover currently enrolled students for accidental injuries that occur in class or college sponsored activities. Accidents must be reported to the Student Health Services & Wellness Program office (SS-170) within 72 hours. The student is responsible for initiating all paperwork and billing their primary insurance company first. There is a $50 deductible on all claims. For full information on this policy you can pick up a bulletin at the Student Health Services Office (SS-170)

Alcohol Poisoning – How to Recognize

  1. Person is unconscious or semi-conscious and cannot be awakened.
  2. Cold, clammy, pale or bluish skin.
  3. Check to see if breathing is slow, less than eight times per minute, or irregular, with ten seconds or more between breaths.
  4. Vomiting while “sleeping” or passed out, and not waking up after vomiting.

If a person has any of these symptoms, he or she is suffering from acute alcohol intoxication.

  1. Get help. Call someone, a staff member, an ambulance, public safety, someone who can help.
  2. Do not leave the person alone. Turn the victim on his/her side to prevent choking in case of vomiting.
  3. Always be “better safe than sorry” if you are not sure what to do. How can your friend be angry about you caring for him or her?
