Health Insurance

All exchange students are required to have health insurance during their period of exchange at NC State.

NC State enrolls all students in the NC State Student Blue insurance. If students have comparable coverage, they are able to waive out of the coverage to avoid being charged the cost of insurance. Students may also elect to remain insured with Student Blue.
