Additional Cost Information

  •  The cost of health insurance is not included in the chart above. All IEP students MUST have health insurance. The NC State Student Blue insurance is $1,293.88 each semester. 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 $1,293.88 even if the Student Blue insurance is not used.
  •  Students applying directly to the IEP for admission (NOT students that are conditionally admitted to NC State) will be required to pay a one-time application fee of $100.  Note that this application fee is non-refundable.
  • IEP students are charged mandatory university fees at the same rate as undergraduates taking 12+ credit hours per semester.

Payment of Fees

  • Payment is always due by the last day of orientation.
  • Paying the fees on time is very important and if a student does not pay on time, they may be dropped from the program.
  • Students will be shown how to pay through the NC State MyPack Portal during orientation.
  • Sponsored students must email their letter of financial guarantee to the Cashier’s Office at sponsorbilling@ncsu.edu before the payment deadline.
