NU-SHIP Cancellations due to Graduation/Withdrawal
The Northwestern University Student Health Insurance Plan (NU-SHIP) provides students with annual coverage, from September 1 through August 31, every year.
Fall 2021 & Winter 2022 Graduates
If you will graduate at the end of Fall or Winter quarter, you may request to terminate your NU-SHIP coverage. We are only able to process the graduation cancellation as of the end quarter in which you actually graduate. Graduation cancellations requests submitted after the applicable deadline(s) below will not be honored or processed.
|Graduation Quarter||NU-SHIP Cancellation Deadline||NU-SHIP Coverage Terminates|
|Fall||December 10, 2021||December 31, 2021|
|Winter||March 18, 2022||March 28, 2022|
Students must complete and submit a 2021-22 NU-SHIP Cancellation Form by the relevant deadline date, to cancel their NU-SHIP enrollment. In an effort to maintain social and physical distancing guidelines due to COVID-19 we are asking that you email the completed form back to email@example.com.
Subsequent to the applicable Fall or Winter graduation date, the Student Health Insurance office will verify that all students who submitted a cancellation request have a formal graduation status posted in CAESAR; students who do not officially graduate after submitting a cancellation request will have their NU-SHIP enrollment reinstated.
Students who withdraw from their degree program at Northwestern University may request to terminate coverage at the end of the quarter in which their withdrawal is processed. Please complete and submit the 2021-22 NU-SHIP Cancellation Form prior to your withdrawal being processed by the University. (Please note: we are unable to cancel NU-SHIP coverage after the student's withdrawal has been finalized in CAESAR.)
Irrespective of whether you are canceling NU-SHIP coverage due to graduation or withdrawal, you will be notified by email once your cancellation has been processed.
Please contact Student Financial Services for information regarding your NU-SHIP premium refund. Please note that the NU Student Health Insurance office does not issue refund checks.
