Northwestern Policy Regarding Health Insurance
Student Health Insurance (NU-SHIP)
Health Insurance is a requirement for all degree-seeking students at Northwestern University. The Student Health Insurance office is here to assist students in making appropriate insurance selections for their health care needs.
You can fulfill the insurance requirement by:
- Waiving enrollment by affirming alternate insurance that meets Northwestern's comparable coverage requirements.
Please contact the Student Health Insurance office with any questions related to Northwestern’s insurance requirements or annual NU-SHIP confirmation/waiver process; comparable coverage requirements for alternate insurance plans; NU-SHIP plan benefits; or for assistance completing the online Coverage Selection Form.
