If you wish to drive in the United States, you will need to
get a North Carolina driver’s license. But you will need
your home country’s license in the beginning. Information
about obtaining an NC driver’s license is available on the
NCDOT Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) web site:
http://www.ncdot.gov/dmv/driver_services/drivingpublic/applying.html

Be sure to carry your driver’s license from your home
country. Law enforcement authorities in North Carolina do
not honor the International Driver License:
http://www.ncdot.gov/dmv/moving/

To get a North Carolina license, you will need to get the
Driver’s Handbook from the DMV or download it:
http://www.ncdot.gov/dmv/driver/

Study the handbook and then go into a DMV driver license
office to take a test to get a North Carolina driver’s license.

If you wish to buy a car, you will need to pay fees related to
official registration and obtaining the title (ownership
document) for your car. Information is available on the DMV
website.
http://www.ncdot.gov/dmv/vehicle_services/registrationtitling/
howToRegister.html

You will have the responsibility to sell the car at the end of
your stay and alert the government agencies that you have
transferred the title (ownership) and wish to end the
registration.
To open a bank account you will need your passport,
the funds you wish to deposit, and as many other
forms of identification as you have: your home country
driver’s license, your visa, your UNCW ID card.
ATMs on campus are located in the Fisher University
Union.

IMBA students can use the Student Health Center only if
they have paid the extra fee offered last week. Your
regular health insurance and tuition fees do not include
this service.
IMBA students who are not U.S. citizens are required to
purchase the UNC system insurance or prove that they
have adequate coverage. Work with Amy Mabery in the
UNCW Office of International Programs.
U.S. students must make sure they have their own
insurance coverage. Your IMBA tuition and student fees
do not cover any insurance.

HTH Worldwide insurance currently has a $100 deductible per
illness. That means you will have to pay $100 at the time of the
visit to a doctor or urgent care center that takes this insurance.
You pay that $100 and then the insurance pays the portion it
allows.
If you go to the same doctor for a different illness, you will have
to pay $100 again before the insurance will pay any of the bills.
There are limits on the amount of coverage provided by your
insurance. Before you visit a health care provider, educate
yourself about the insurance coverage and the maximum
benefits the insurance will pay for treatment of an illness or
hospitalization.
If you have not opted for the paid coverage to use the
Student Health Center, plan for health care needs in advance.
In case you need medical care, there are a few urgent care
centers near the university. We cannot recommend any of
these, but these are simply the ones we know about near
UNCW.
Be careful about fees and ask in advance what you will be
charged.
Nearby Urgent Care Center:
 NextCare Urgent Care Centre
4815 Oleander Drive, Wilmington, NC, 888-381-4858
Before you go to the hospital, make sure your condition requires
immediate treatment and that you understand the costs you will be
charged. Hospital treatment might cost you personally thousands of
dollars in addition to what the insurance pays.
