Massachusetts

Health Requirements:

Immunizations - Paper form required before students can register for first term of full-time study (or any courses in health care facilities).

Health Insurance - Massachusetts law states that students who meet the following criteria are required to be enrolled in the College’s Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan, or participate in a plan with comparable coverage.

  • Attend classes within Massachusetts, and

  • Are enrolled in a certificate or degree program, and

  • Are enrolled full-time or three-quarter time (undergraduate: 9 credits or more; graduate: 6 credits or more).

A student’s status as full or three-quarter time is determined as of the last date of the add/drop period.

Students who have insurance with comparable coverage may waive out of the College’s Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan by submitting an annual waiver request by the term deadline. It is the student’s responsibility to determine and certify that their insurance is comparable. To submit the annual waiver request, students must go the MyCC web portal homepage and follow the instructions under Student Health Insurance; click on the external link provided, and follow the online instructions.

Students who do not submit an annual waiver request by the deadline are automatically enrolled in and billed for the College’s Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan. The deadline changes each term, but is within a week of the last date of the add/drop period for the term. The deadline for the current term is posted on the MyCC web portal homepage.

Students are required to submit an annual waiver request in the first term they are enrolled and every fall term thereafter. Students returning after a leave of absence must submit the waiver request in the term when they return.
