Health Insurance Requirement

ACADEMIC YEAR 2023 - 2024

Students who are taking 6 or more credit hours (main campus or distance learning) must provide proof of health insurance coverage in order to avoid having a BCBS Student Blue health insurance premium charged to their student account. The only exception to the 6-credit hour stipulation is if your Major is considered a Distance Learning major or if you are non-degree seeking. 

Students who do not provide verifiable health insurance information before the waiver deadline will be enrolled automatically in the UNC endorsed student health insurance plan and will be billed for the semester. The BCBS Student Blue health insurance policy is part of a UNC system-wide plan, negotiated each year through the insurance agent for the state of North Carolina.

The waiver deadline for the Fall 2023 semester is September 11. If the deadline is missed, you will be charged for the Spring Student insurance premium and default enrolled!
