GradGuard’s Tuition Insurance Plan can provide reimbursement for tuition, room, board, and other fees if you’re forced to withdraw due to a covered illness, injury or mental health condition at any time during the covered term. You also get access to an award-winning Assistance Hotline where one call can help students and their families take care of emergencies and unexpected issues.

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 College'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.


Northwestern College is not responsible for the property of others. This includes loss or damage to your property located on our premises. Please review your homeowner's and auto insurance policies to determine if your property is adequately covered in the event of loss or damage. The only exception to this policy is when the college has care, custody or control of the property of others. In those circumstances, you may have a claim under the college's insurance policy.
