Student health insurance

Students should continue to be covered by a family healthcare policy because they are not covered by Northwestern in case of illness or injury that requires medical attention or hospitalization.

International students

Students with an address outside the United States are required to show evidence of health coverage before classes begin each semester and to maintain that coverage while on campus. Further information is available from Northwestern's intercultural development office.


Student-athletes are required to be covered by insurance to participate in athletics. You must provide the Raider athletic training office with your insurance information. Further information is available from Northwestern’s athletic training office.
