All students participating in study abroad programs or other university-affiliated international travel are required to be enrolled in the GeoBlue international health insurance policy for the duration of their program. This policy is utilized by the entire UNC System and provides comprehensive, low-cost health insurance coverage (see the International Health Insurance page for current cost).
GeoBlue health insurance only covers students while abroad and during their program dates; therefore, the Study Abroad Office recommends all students remain enrolled in domestic health insurance while studying abroad to ensure coverage before and after program dates. Students are also able to purchase Before and After coverage directly from GeoBlue to cover travel outside of their program dates.
All NC State study abroad program personnel will be enrolled in the GeoBlue international health insurance policy as a part of the University’s risk management practices.
