Effective fall 2010, international students are required to purchase Hospitalization/Sickness Insurance. International students will be automatically enrolled into the insurance plan by the Business Office. The cost of the insurance coverage will be charged to your student account. The Business Office will remit payment to the insurance company on your behalf and contact you when insurance cards become available.
If you wish to submit a Waiver, click on “Waive Student Health Insurance” and follow the steps to compete your Waiver request. The portal will be open December 1, 2016 through January 31, 2017 to submit your online waiver. Be sure to have your insurance card available as you will be required to provide your insurance information. Upon completion of the waiver, you will receive an initial email indicating the waiver is pending. Our insurance provider will review the waiver request and determine if your plan meets requirements of the Affordable Care Act and includes acceptable coverage in North Carolina. If so, the student will receive a 2nd email confirmation of approval and the charge will be removed from the student account. Important: If the first email stating that the waiver is pending is not received, please resubmit.
