UNCEP Semester/Academic Year Programs: Insurance Coverage Policy

  • All students studying abroad on a UNCEP Exchange Program are required to be covered for the duration of their study abroad program. This is a mandatory UNC System requirement. SAO enrolls students in coverage based upon a standard set of coverage dates for the term they will be abroad. These dates will be listed in the invoice attached to the student’s online study abroad application.
  • Students are expected to verify that these coverage dates will cover the duration of their program. If a student’s program is longer or shorter than the duration of the coverage period, he/she may request a date adjustment. Student should submit a request in writing to the SAO at least 2 weeks prior to the start of insurance coverage.
  • Insurance cards will be uploaded to the student’s study abroad application once they have been processed. The student will receive an email when they are available.
  • See Insurance Rates
  • The Study Abroad Office offers insurance coverage for dependents or coverage extension for up to 30 days beyond the dates of the program. For dependent or extension coverage please see Additional Insurance Coverage Policy.
