Wake Forest University is committed to the health and wellbeing of all of its students.

Health insurance is required as a condition of enrollment for:

  • Full-time, degree-seeking domestic undergraduate students in Wake Forest College
  • Degree-seeking domestic graduate students* in the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, Divinity, School of Business and School of Law
  • International students with F or J visas
  • Undergraduate students who are degree-seeking students who only need part-time status to complete their degree

Students who are not currently insured may enroll in the Student Blue plan from Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina.

Students who are covered under their own insurance plan or a parent’s plan, that meets the University’s criteria (found here), may elect to waive the Student Blue plan.  

Students must enroll or waive prior to the fall semester each year. The benefits period is August 1 through July 31.

2023-24 Premiums: $2,858 per year or $1,429 per semester

Student Health Insurance Need-Based Grant: Students receiving need-based financial aid who are required to purchase the University’s Student Blue may request funding through Student Financial Aid to cover the premiums. Please contact Student Financial Aid at finaid@wfu.edu for information.
