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, an undergraduate student with nine or more credit hours or a graduate student with 6.75 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 2013

The process allowing you to enroll in or to waive out of the insurance is available as of the first week of July 2013. When health insurance registration opens, you must be currently registered for 75 percent of a full-time course load 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, 2013.  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, 2013 which will prevent you from preregistering for Spring 2014 classes. This process must be completed each new academic year (fall term).
