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 9 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 on-line waive. Please note that the University will open the waiver process beginning on November 17, 2015 and will close it on February 8, 2016. As soon as you receive an email at your NIU address from the student health insurance office, you can complete the waiver. The email is usually sent within 48 hours of your enrollment in classes. If you waived the insurance for the fall semester, you do not need to do another waiver for the spring. A fall waiver is good for one school year.  Please visit the NIU student health insurance website to access the waiver form.
