*All IEP students MUST have health insurance. Students can choose whether to use the NC State Student Blue insurance or find an alternative option. Students are automatically enrolled but have the option to waive out if they have their own insurance. Failure to waive will result in the student being responsible for the fee even if the Student Blue insurance is not used.

***Estimated living costs include approximately $250 for books.

Actual expenses per semester may be higher or lower depending on the student’s lifestyle.
