Health Insurance: All UNCSA students registered for six (6) or more credits in a given semester must have health insurance coverage either through the UNC system s student health insurance plan or through a private carrier. Complete information regarding the UNC insurance policy offered by the school may be obtained at Students obtain this insurance by paying the student health service fee and the student health insurance premium. A student wishing to waive UNC plan coverage must do so via the above web address. In such a circumstance, filing insurance claims and covering charges for outside providers, outside emergency services, hospitalization, and so forth, are the student s responsibility. Medical bills are not mailed to parents. Health Fee: Students registered for six (6) or more credit hours in a given semester must pay a prorated Student Health fee, which is based upon the number of credit hours. Required Health Records: Before registering for classes, all students planning to take four (4) or more credit hours in a given semester must have on file at Student Health Services a completed UNCSA health form and a current record of immunizations.

The Director of Student Health will review all medical forms and reserves the right to request tuberculosis skin testing or a physical exam if the medical history indicates a community risk. Special Notes: Students registered for fewer than six (6) credit hours in a given semester do not pay a health fee (and therefore may not utilize Student Health Services), are not required to have a physical exam on file, and are exempt from the health insurance requirement. Students enrolled in an internship program located such a distance from campus that utilizing Student Health Services is impractical are not required to pay the health fee (and therefore may not utilize Student Health Services), are exempt from the insurance requirement, and do not have to file a health form. Any student wanting to be on the school-sponsored insurance must pay the health fee. International Travel: Students anticipating international travel should contact the Wellness Center for a complete health history form, recommendations for required immunizations, a self-care kit (first aid supplies), prescriptions, any letter necessary for specific health documentation, and the latest information about health concerns pertaining to the destination (including recommendations for food, water and medical Page 12

Pandemic Protocols: Should pandemic directives become relevant (e.g., the H1N1 flu pandemic), UNCSA will enforce provisions for student confinement and quarantine. I. Student Engagement Office: The Student Engagement Office provides programs and services to enrich the campus experience. Social, cultural, recreational, athletic, and service programs help students develop leadership, teamwork, and citizenship skills and learn effective uses of leisure time.

Social programs include dances, parties, films, concerts, comedy shows, and interactive novelty events.

Policy for the Prevention of Bias-Related Harassment and Procedures for Investigations of Alleged Infractions: Generally, this policy sets forth UNCSA s prohibitions on harassment based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, disability, veteran status, or political affiliation, including sexual harassment, and this policy also sets forth reporting and investigation requirements. (Prohibited Harassment Policy #117) H. Facilities Use Policy: Students desiring to reserve campus facilities should consult this policy in the UNCSA policy manual. (Facilities Use Policy #402) I. Smoking Policy: No regularly enrolled high school student, regardless of age, may smoke or possess tobacco products (including cigarettes, e-cigarettes, cigars, smokeless tobacco, herb cigarettes, clove cigarettes, pipes, chewing tobacco, pipe tobacco, cigarette rolling papers or similar items), lit or unlit, either on campus or off during the duration of their attendance at UNCSA, except when in the custody and control of the student s parent(s) or legal guardian(s). Students need not be using any tobacco/smoking product to be in violation of the policy, as possession alone constitutes violation. Infractions of this policy should be reported to High School Life, providing the violator s and complainant or reporting party s names and the date, time, and location of the infraction. Also, no one (including parents or legal guardians) may smoke in any campus building or Universityowned vehicle or within fifty (50) feet of any building entrance or HVAC intake vent. (Smoking Policy #703) J. Solicitation Policy: Consult this policy, the Code of Conduct, and the Facilities Use Policy before attempting any solicitation activities on campus. (Solicitation Policy #204) K. Improper Relations Between Faculty and Students: This policy protects students and prohibits relationships between faculty and students in certain contexts. Note, too, that state law prohibits sexual relationships between high school students and education personnel. (Improper Relations Policy #616) L. Drug Education: In compliance with federal law, UNCSA has programs concerning drug abuse education and prevention. M. Lockers: Lockers are provided for students convenience but remain UNCSA property. UNCSA reserves the right to inspect lockers at any time, without notice, without student consent, and without a search warrant. To reserve a locker, follow procedures established by the appropriate arts school or high school academic office. Each student may have only one locker, and all lockers must be cleaned out by the last official day of Spring Page 20
