General Information

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, located in Greensboro, North Carolina, was established in 1891. It opened as a women’s college, the State Normal and Industrial School, and became the State Normal and Industrial College in 1897. From 1919–1931 it was the North Carolina College for Women, and from 1932–1963 it was the Woman’s College of the University of North Carolina. During this latter period, it became the largest all-female higher-education institution in the country. Men were first admitted to the school in 1964. In 1963, the school adopted its present name. Today, UNC Greensboro enrolls more than 20,000 students and counting each year. The school colors are gold, white, and navy, and its athletic nickname is the Spartans.

University of North Carolina, Greensboro International Student Insurance Requirements

Exchange Visitors

University of North Carolina at Greensboro states that J-1 Exchange Visitors (Research Scholar, Professor, Short-Term Scholar, and Specialist) and their dependents are required to comply with the Department of State federal health insurance limits for the duration of their stay. They are required to obtain insurance and provide proof to the International Programs Center (IPC). The university recommends plans that will provide coverage for pre-existing conditions; however, it does not require them to do so.

International Students

The University states that due to the hard waiver for student health insurance requirements that was implemented by the Board of Governors, all students are automatically enrolled in the school’s health plan.

J-1 International students and their dependents are required to have health insurance as stated by the UNCG and are subject to the requirements as stated by the Department of State. The University states they are required to purchase the UNCG insurance or provide proof of an active health insurance that meets the waiver requirements as provided by the UNCG. Please contact your ICP office for further details regarding the waiver requirements.

The University states that F-1 students are able to waive the school’s health insurance plan if they can provide proof of a creditable health insurance plan. Please contact your ICP office for further details regarding the waiver requirements.

Please contact our office if you would like more information. This information may be subject to change based on a health insurance waiver or compliance form.
