Health Insurance

Massachusetts state law requires all students registered for 9 or more credits (or for a semester of co-op) to have health insurance coverage. To comply with this law, students who meet the criteria are assessed a charge for a student health insurance plan. If a student is already covered by an alternate plan that offers comparable coverage and would like to waive the school‘s insurance plan, the student MUST complete a waiver online by the deadline. Information and deadlines for completing the waiver are published by Student Financial Services on Leopardweb and by targeted communications.

The standard fee for health insurance for the 2011-12 academic year is $1,025.
