The waiver deadline for the Winter semester/term for all programs is February 1.

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. To help prevent unwanted charges, the Student Health Insurance department continuously sends waiver reminders to students’ student email until the charge has been removed.
