Student Accident Insurance, paid by the College using student activity funds, provides coverage to all registered and enrolled curriculum students for covered injuries* sustained while the insured student is:
- participating in activities sponsored or supervised by the school
- traveling during such activities as a member of a group in transportation furnished or arranged by the school
- traveling directly to or from the insured's home premises i.e., NCC, and the site of such activities. (NCC is considered the "home premises.")
Information concerning effective/termination dates, definitions, accidental death, and specific loss benefits, accident medical expense benefits, exclusions, and payment of claims, can be found in the North Carolina Community and Technical Colleges Student Accident Insurance brochure which is available in the Student and Enrollment Services Office and Student Accident Insurance Brochure.
