*SPS students are exempt from this process

Guest Access not yet available

We apologize. Northwestern recently experienced a University-wide system upgrade, and all new links to guest access were postponed. We anticipate Guest Access will be available in the future. We appreciate your patience as we work to improve access and services.

Waiving NU-SHIP Coverage

Alternate plans must cover routine, non-emergency medical and mental health care in addition to emergency care, provided in the Evanston / Chicago area.
