2017-2018 Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP)

Maintaining your health while in college is important! For that reason, NNU requires all undergraduate and international (undergraduate and graduate) students to have health insurance. NNU facilitates a Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) for those who are uninsured or who have limited access to health care. For SHIP information and details, please download this Student Health Insurance Packet.

The following groups of students will be automatically billed for the SHIP:

  1. returning students who were admitted (or readmitted) in Fall 2015 or later;
  2. new, readmit and transfer students;
  3. international students.

(Students admitted before Fall 2015, as well as all graduate students, are not required to provide proof of insurance but they may opt-in by submitting this opt-in form.)

If you are not an international student, you may waive out of this insurance by submitting this waiver form along with a copy of your insurance card by the first day of classes at the beginning of each school year. Instructions for submitting the waiver are printed on the form.
