Estimated IEP Costs for Summer 2015, Fall 2015, Spring 2016

Program and University fees ($6,136.44) are due by the day of orientation (8/21/15). Paying the fees on time is very important and if a student does not pay on time, they may be dropped from the program. All fees below are subject to change without notice. Actual expenses per semester may be higher or lower depending on the student's lifestyle.

Students applying for IEP-only admission will also be required to pay a one-time application fee of $100.


Health Insurance Coverage 

All North Carolina State University students, including IEP students, are required to maintain health/medical insurance throughout their time at the university. 

NC State students who are enrolled in classes through the IEP are now eligible for Student Blue from Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, for a fee of $863.50 each semester ($1727 per year). Students may waive enrollment in (choose not to use) Student Blue if they can prove you have health/medical insurance from another insurance provider. This insurance may be purchased abroad or in the United States, but it must meet the following coverage types and minimum amounts:


  •  Provides a minimum total coverage of $100,000 (USD) per accident or illness
  •  Provides a policy yearly deductible of no greater than $500 (USD)
  •  Provides repatriation of remains coverage of at least $25,000 (USD)
  •  Provides a minimum of $50,000 for medical evacuation to the home country 
  •  Policy must be currently active and cover you for the duration of the current semester


If a student wants to waive enrollment in Student Blue, they may want to consider these health/medical insurance providers (see bottom of page). The procedure for waiving Student Blue insurance will be further explained at IEP Orientation.

Please remember that students are required to either enroll in the Student Blue insurance plan through BCBS of North Carolina or waive out of the plan by September 10, 2015.
