Medical Insurance

Massachusetts law requires all students carrying at least 75 percent of the full time curriculum to be covered under a qualifying medical insurance plan. If the student does not wish to participate in the Boston University Medical Insurance Plan, he or she must annually file a Medical Insurance Waiver form that certifies coverage under a comparable medical insurance plan. For more information, please visit the Student Accounting Services page regarding medical insurance.
Please note: Non-degree students who register for one or more graduate-level courses will be assessed graduate student tuition charges.
