New for 2015-2016: The Voluntary Plan and dependent/spousal coverage through StudentBlue will no longer be offered. This change also removes the option for the three month extension of the insurance plan. You may check healthcare.gov for health insurance options.
Health insurance premiums are not included in the total cost of attendance. Students who purchase the University’s health insurance plan may contact their financial aid counselor to request the expense be included in their individual cost of attendance.
Health Insurance Requirement
In August 2009, the University Of North Carolina Board Of Governors implemented a hard waiver student health insurance requirement for all sixteen campuses in the University of North Carolina system. To ensure that this requirement is met, students will automatically be billed for the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) each semester through their Student Account. For students who have a credible health insurance plan and wish to not participate in SHIP, they must submit their active health insurance information by completing an online waiver. Once a waiver has been submitted and approved, University Cashier’s will remove the Student Health Insurance Plan premium from the student’s account.
Note: Waivers must be submitted EACH semester by the posted deadline in order to receive a premium refund. Refunds are not given after the posted deadline. The Fall 2015 waive/enroll period will open on or before June 1, 2015.
