Student Health Insurance

Students enrolled in certain Nova Southeastern University (NSU) programs are required to carry adequate health insurance coverage. Generally, this applies to most programs in the Health Professions Division (HPD), all Traditional Undergraduate Day Students, all on-campus residential students (including graduate students), and full-time students in the J.D. Law program.  

If you are a student in a mandatory program, you will automatically be enrolled in the NSU Student Health Insurance Plan, and your student account will be charged accordingly. If you are insured under another insurance plan, you must opt out of the NSU Student Health Insurance Plan each academic year by the given waiver deadline for your program. The effective dates for coverage under the NSU Student Health Insurance Plan will coincide with the academic year, not the calendar year.
