The Administration at Northwest Iowa Community College is providing all new students with vaccination information on meningococcal disease. Please refer to the National Meningitis Association website. We encourage you to discuss the vaccine with a health care provider and then decide whether or not you may want to be vaccinated.
Northwest Iowa Community College does not have a compulsory insurance plan, but the College recommends that you enroll in a voluntary health program to assure protection in the event of illness or injury.
If you are enrolled as a member of a family health or hospital related plan, you should be aware of the age that family coverage is terminated. The purchase of insurance shall be voluntary with the entire cost being paid by you.
Students who are physically and actively attending classes on campus who wish to enroll in a private insurance policy can find more information at the Student Assurance Services website. Download a brochure and enrollment form from this website, or you can call Student Assurance Services, Inc. at 651-439-7098 or 800-328-2739 for a brochure/enrollment form. Students wishing to enroll in the plan should refer to the plan brochure for specific guidance on benefits, premiums or enrollment. However, in general, students must submit a completed enrollment form and the appropriate premium (for the coverage period requested) to:
