Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP)

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 you do not wish to participate in the Boston University Student Health Insurance Plan, you have the opportunity to waive SHIP coverage—provided you have other coverage that meets the comparable coverage requirements. For more information, see the Student Accounting Services Student Health Insurance page.
