Health Insurance Requirement

In an effort to keep our records up-to-date and your student account accurate,  we'd like to introduce the new, efficient way to submit your Insurance Waiver ONLINEThanks for your understanding and cooperation with this change!

ALL waivers and voluntary enrollment must be completed (annually) on or before the 21st day of Fall classes.

NOTE: Out of state Medicaid is not accepted in North Carolina. All  students with out of state Medicaid will be charged for school insurance unless documentation is provided of NC coverage.
