HEALTH INSURANCE
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires all Graduate students taking six (6) or more credits in the fall or spring semester to submit evidence of health insurance coverage.  If Assumption College does not receive proof of health insurance coverage, the student will be automatically enrolled in and billed for the College’s health insurance plan.  Graduate students may waive the health insurance by completing the online health insurance waiver form available through the Student Account Center via the MyAssumption.Portal. For more information visit the Finance Office student accounts webpage.
