Mandatory Student Health Insurance (Hard Waiver Process)

Students gather on the quad

Most eligible students enrolled in the UNC System Colleges and Universities are required to have health insurance coverage. Students who meet the eligibility criteria, regardless of in person or virtual means of instruction, will have to show proof of insurance in order to waive Student Blue, or be automatically enrolled on the deadline.

Each semester, Student Health Insurance (the insurance premium) is added to all eligible students' University accounts.  Eligible students must enroll to activate their insurance or complete the online waiver process with their own creditable insurance coverage before the deadline each semester. Once the waiver is verified and approved, the premium will be removed from the student’s account.

SEMESTER DEADLINES for WAIVE and ENROLL:

FALL - SEPTEMBER 10     SPRING - JANUARY 31
