New Students

Welcome to NC State! Student Health Services looks forward to providing you the care you need to stay well. It is important that you do two tasks regarding your health insurance so we can best serve you during your academic career.

  1. Waive or Enroll into the Student Health Insurance Plan by the posted deadline each semester.
  2. Bring the most recent insurance card to all appointments at Student Health Services.

Student Health Insurance Plan

The Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) premium will appear on your student account once you register for courses and if you meet all the invoking criteria. The premium can be removed from the account by submitting an online waiver by the posted deadline. Be aware that if you fail to waive coverage, the premium for SHIP is non-refundable after the posted deadline each semester. If you wish to enroll in SHIP, we encourage you to do so as soon as the enrollment period opens. This ensures you will receive an insurance card prior to the plan effective date each semester.

Please note, If you neither waive nor enroll into SHIP by the posted deadline you will automatically be enrolled after the posted deadline.  The Fall 2015 deadline is September 10th.  The insurance premium is non-refundable after the above deadline.

Health insurance premiums are not included in the total cost of attendance. Students who purchase the University’s health insurance plan may contact their financial aid counselor to request the expense be included in their individual cost of attendance.
