North Carolina Community College Student Health Insurance Plan

Are you a community college student with no health insurance for you, your partner, or child? North Carolina Community College Student Health Plan (NCCCSHP) is ready for you. NCCCSHP is simple: the semester premium rate is the same regardless of your age, agenda, or where you live and work. NCCCSHP also has coverage for your partner and children.

Credit Hours

  • Students may enroll for coverage where they take 4 or more credit hours in the Fall or Spring semester; 3 or more credit hours in summer semester.

A student becomes ineligible for coverage when:

  • The student leaves school (except for excused military leave), or
