Health Insurance

NIU offers its students a health insurance plan that protects students at school, at home, and while traveling or studying abroad. Enrollment in the plan is automatic for students registered for nine or more on-campus hours. Students may purchase the insurance if they enroll in at least one credit hour. For more information about the plan and coverage please visit the NIU student health insurance website.

If you are covered under other health insurance, and would like to opt out of NIU Health Insurance you must submit an online waiver. Please note that the university will open the waiver process beginning on July 3, 2017 and will close it on September 8, 2017. Please visit the NIU student health insurance website to learn about how to cancel your insurance.

If you have questions please contact the Student Health Insurance office at 815-753-0122 or via email at
