Student Health Insurance
Massachusetts state law requires all students registered for at least 75 percent of a full-time course load to have health insurance. Therefore, students with nine or more credit hours must either:
- enroll in the college sponsored health insurance plan offered by University Health Plans
- or waive the plan if aleady receiving comparable health insurance coverage.
Online Health Insurance Registration Starts - First week of July 2012
The process allowing you to enroll in or to waive the insurance is now available. When health insurance registration opens, you must be currently registered for nine or more credits for the fall semester in order to access your information. Allow a couple of days for your information to reach University Health Plans if you are in the middle of the registration process.
IMPORTANT: The deadline for enrolling in or waiving the insurance is September 30, 2012. If you do not enroll in or waive out of the insurance plan, a hold will be put onto your student account as of October 1, 2012 which will prevent you from preregistering for Spring 2013 classes. This process must be completed each new academic year (fall term).
