Massachusetts law requires that all students enrolled in 9 or more credits, and taking classes on- campus, must have health insurance. Students meeting this criteria will automatically be enrolled and a charge will be assessed to their account. Gallagher Student Health and Special Risk is our health insurance broker. Please visit their website to explore your options. Visit the Health and Safety Compliance section at for more specific information on the plan and rates.

Once enrolled, you will be responsible to manage your own account with Gallagher Student Health and Special Risk, including modifying coverage in your plan, and any other customer service needs.

There are three, 6-week enrollment/waiver periods each academic year. Students need only waive once per academic year:

  • August 1 - September 15 for the Fall semester - students may also choose to enroll or waive for the entire year at this time (through August)
  • December 1 - January 15 for the Spring/Summer semesters (waivers and enrollments during this time will apply to both Spring and Summer semesters)
  • April 1 - May 15 for the Summer semester only

Please visit Gallagher Student Health and Special Risk where you may waive or enroll in insurance. Paper waivers will not be accepted . If the waiver is approved, the student will be waived for the time period selected. If denied, the student will be enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Program. Once the waiver has been approved or denied, the student will be notified via email.
