Student Insurance

Certain risks are inherent in any work involving regular contact with mechanical and electrical equipment. While stringent precautions will be taken to ensure safety, it is felt to be in the best interest of all students to provide some measure of insurance protection. All students in healthcare and personal service programs must have malpractice insurance.

The college will maintain a group policy providing insurance protection, and all students will be covered. The cost of accident insurance to the student is included in the student fee for curriculum students. International students are encouraged to secure more complete coverage.

Malpractice Insurance

A $5.00 malpractice insurance fee will be charged for the fall and spring semesters for students enrolled in applicable programs (total fee of $10.00 per academic year). There will be no malpractice insurance charged for the summer semester. For questions regarding the malpractice insurance policy, please contact the Business Office.

Breakage Fee

Breakage, damage, or loss due to student negligence, carelessness, or other mishandling of school supplies, materials, or equipment is the responsibility of the student. The student will be required to pay for such items and may be subject to disciplinary action.

Security Fee

EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2013
Central Carolina Community College's Board of Trustees approved a $10 security fee for all curriculum students. The $10.00 fee will be charged only for the Fall and Spring semesters.

Student Fee

Students registering for curriculum classes during the fall and spring semesters will pay $14.00 per semester when registering for less than 7 credit hours and $28.00 per semester when registering for 7 or more credit hours. Students registering for the summer term will pay a one-time fee of $4.

The student fee provides the revenue necessary for the Student Government Association to provide services and activities for the student body. Typically, the SGA provides the following benefits from the student activity fee: SGA calendar and handbook, parking stickers, Activity Days, dances, socials, guest speakers, intramural and intercollegiate athletics, as well as other events the Student Government Association might deem appropriate.

The student fee includes the cost of accident insurance. Students are covered for accidents that occur while traveling to and from college.

Persons 65 years of age or over are exempt from student fees except for the student insurance fee.
