Student Insurance Programs

The Office of Risk Management is a resource for Northwestern University students to identify and manage risks associated with their activities being performed on behalf of or at the direction of the University.  Various types of coverage in the University’s liability program, including automobile liability, extend protection to eligible students.  The Office of Risk Management, in collaboration with other units,  sponsors a student health plan (NU-SHIP),  administers a self-insurance program for film students, and offers an optional tuition refund program that supplements the existing University refund policy.
