2019-2020 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.

Please note: A student who is enrolled in SHIP will not be eligible for removal and reimbursement unless the student withdraws from NNU within 31 days of the period he or she is enrolled. (before August 31 for the fall semester or before January 31 for the spring semester).
