Note on Insurance for Fully Remote Students

August 18, 2020

Students who are completely remote and only attending classes via online do not have to take an action to waive out of the mandatory insurance plan. 100% remote students are not required to participate in the mandatory health insurance plan and are therefore not required to waive. The premium will be added to all University student accounts and will be automatically removed for 100% Remote and Carolina Away learners at the end of September.
