Health Insurance

UNCG students in degree programs who are taking 6 or more credit hours must be able to demonstrate proof of health insurance to avoid a required health insurance fee on their account. Students covered by their own or their family's plan must verify the policy through a secure online system by providing a current, valid health insurance policy number. Students who do not provide a verified insurance policy number will be billed each semester by UNCG for the cost of the student health insurance policy.
