Health Insurance is required for all UNCW students who meet the following three criteria:
- Enrolled in a minimum of 6 credit hours per semester for undergraduates or 1 credit hour for graduate students
- Enrolled in a degree-seeking program and
- Eligible to pay the UNCW student health fee
This may be insurance students bring with them (family, employer, etc.), insurance they purchase through the school, or a combination of both plans.
Students will be required to complete the Enrollment or Waiver Process each fall.
Since extension and distance education students do not pay the health fee or use the health center, they will not be required to show proof of health insurance.Beginning in the Fall 2013 Student Blue will be the new insurance vendor for the Student Health Insurance Program.
