Mandatory Health Insurance Requirement

NSU requires all students to maintain medical health insurance coverage. Upon class registration, you'll automatically be enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan, with charges applied to your student account accordingly. Keep track of your account status through NSU eBill.

Remember, the U.S. Healthcare System doesn't provide universal coverage, and medical services entail financial risks. Be sure to review why health insurance is essential for your well-being.
