Medical Insurance

Massachusetts Law C.15A.s.18 requires every undergraduate student registered for 9 or more credits and every graduate student who is registered for 7 or more credits to purchase health insurance.

All students are charged for the university health insurance plan.

If the student chooses not to purchase the university plan they need to complete an online waiver form yearly that can be accessed by clicking the "Waive Health Insurance online" on the student accounts website. This process must be completed to avoid being charged the insurance cost on the tuition bill.

If you need more information about purchasing or waiving the Student Health Insurance you can call the Student Accounts office at 978-665-4126.
