Massachusetts state law requires that all students enrolled in 9 or more credits in the Fall or Spring terms, be covered with health insurance. There are no exceptions. If you are taking 9 or more credits, you are automatically charged the premium. If you have comparable coverage, you may complete an online waiver to deduct this cost .Click on Health Insurance Information on the left for more complete information and instructions on how to complete an insurance waiver.
Programs such as Commonwealth Care, Free Care or foreign insurance cannot be used to waive this insurance.
