Health Requirements

Immunizations are required for students taking On-Campus classes.  Please refer to the Immunization Compliance website for specific immunization.

All International students are required to complete a Tuberculosis (TB) screening form (PDF).  If you answer yes to any of the questions on the screening form Northern Illinois University requires that you receive TB testing as soon as possible. Contact Northwestern Medicine Student Health center at 815-306-2777 to make up an appointment. Please bring the screening form with you to that appointment.

Waiving Coverage

Students who are eligible to cancel the insurance must contact the Student Health Insurance office and provide proof of other comparable coverage during the semester’s waiver period.
