IMMUNIZATIONS OFFERED AT STUDENT HEALTH SERVICES
- PPD (TB Skin Test)
Fee: $7.00 each.
Note: As of June 1, 2000 proof of TB Skin Test (PPD) is no longer required. Prospective teachers, international students, and health care workers are still required to provide SHS with proof of TB skin test (PPD) and documented results.
Students enrolled at UNCP pay a Student Health Fee as part of their tuition each semester. This fee pays for most of the services provided by SHS. Part-time students and University personnel may receive nursing and first-aid services; however, if part-time students elect to pay the full health services fee they can also receive care by the contracted physician.
Student Health Insurance
All registered students taking six (6) or more credit hours on campus are required to purchase the student injury and sickness insurance plan, with the following exceptions: distance education students and students who submit evidence of equivalent coverage satisfactory to the policyholder may waive coverage. If you do not submit a waiver online, you will automatically purchase the Student Health Insurance and the charge will remain on your student account.
If you have any questions, please contact Student Health Services at 910-521-6219.
