Student Insurance Enrollment/Waiver Deadline: Feb. 1

WAIVE OUT OR YOU’RE IN: The BCBSNC portal is open! Deadline is Feb. 1

North Carolina Central University students meeting specific eligibility criteria are required to have health insurance.  NCCU is offering a cost effective option for our students through Student Blue from Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC).


·         Undergraduate/Graduate Students must be in a degree seeking program and enrolled in 6 or more credit hours on main campus and pay the medical fee.

·         All students meeting the eligibility/requirement criteria will be automatically billed for the Student Health Insurance Plan.  To activate your insurance you must take action by enrolling.

·        To enroll for Spring 2016 visit www.bcbsnc.com/student


·          It is the student’s responsibility to complete an online waiver to opt out of the Student Health Insurance Plan in order for the waiver credit to be applied to the student’s bill.

·         Waivers or enrollment must be completed by February 1, 2016 for the Spring 2016 Semester.

·         If you do not have an approved waiver by February 1, 2016 you will be enrolled in the student insurance plan by default.

·         NOTE: Distance Education students ONLY are not required to have health insurance nor are they required to waive out.  Distance Education ONLY students do not meet the eligibility requirements for enrollment.

·         Please visit www.bcbsnc.com/student to waive out, enroll, or find more information about the Student Health Insurance Plan.

BCBSNC offers a mobile application that students can use to access the waiver,  enrollment and My Member Services for Student Blue accounts.

Students may shop the open market to find creditable health coverage with the benefits and price desired instead of the UNC Student Health Insurance. Additionally, the Student Health Insurance cost is built into the Tuition & Fees at NCCU and is considered in the need analysis used by the Office of Scholarships & Aid.
