First Year Students

 1. Verify your insurance online.

Student Blue, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, is the student health insurance carrier for the 2014-2015 academic year.

  • Students are required to have health insurance to attend a UNC system school. Students with existing health insurance coverage can waive out of the school insurance plan.  Visit www.bcbsnc.com/uncg.
  • Students registered in 6 or more main campus credit hours must either “enroll in” or “waive out” of student health insurance each semester  by submitting information on-line to www.bcbsnc.com/uncg prior to the January 30, 2015 deadline.
  • Distance learners and students enrolled for less than 6 main campus credit hours are eligible for the Voluntary Plan only.
  • Students that do not submit an on-line waiver for verification of outside health insurance or students that do not
    enroll themselves in the StudentBlue Insurance plan will automatically be enrolled and the insurance premium
    WILL remain on your student account.
  • To prevent delays in coverage for those students that will be participating in the StudentBlue plan, please enroll
    as soon as you decide to accept the University’s coverage.
  • Rates for the 2014-2015 Academic Year are $1,604 per year ($802 per semester).

*If you select WAIVE, then you are required to submit proof of insurance onlinePlease do not fax or mail copies of insurance cards to the Student Insurance Office. We do not accept electronic copies of insurance cards.

AlcoholEdu is an online alcohol education program. All incoming freshmen under the age of 21 are required to complete AlcoholEdu.  Students who meet these qualifications may access AlcoholEdu beginning Monday, July 14, 2014.  Transfer and International Students DO NOT have to complete this course even if they are under the age of 21.

More than 35% of the nation’s first-year students at four-year institutions engage with AlcoholEdu for College every year, producing the world’s largest database on college students and alcohol. It remains the only program specifically designed for ALL students — whether they are frequent heavy drinkers, light to moderate drinkers, or non drinkers.

Research indicates that the average student comes to college with a drinking history. With this fact in mind The University of North Carolina Greensboro requires all first year students under the age of 21 to complete AlcoholEdu for College. You must complete the program before you can register for spring semester. This two-part, online, science-based course provides detailed information on the effects of alcohol on the body and mind. It helps students make well-informed decisions about alcohol and cope with peers’ drinking behaviors.
