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.

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.
