Student Health Insurance Requirements and Waiver/Enrollment Process
According to state law, all students must be covered by a health insurance plan with comparable coverage as a Massachusetts Qualifying Student Health Insurance Plan (QSHIP). To ensure that all students have the required health insurance coverage, students are charged for the Student Health Insurance Plan on their student account. Students will be billed by Wheaton for the annual coverage in two installments; the first is due August 1 and the second installment is due January 1. For more information visit Gallagher Student Health. Waiver deadlines apply.
Please visit Student Health Services for more information.
