Health Insurance Requirement

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires all students enrolled at least 3/4 time to be enrolled in a health insurance plan. To ensure that Emmanuel College students are meeting this requirement, all students are automatically enrolled in the College's health plan and are charged the annual health insurance premium. The cost of the plan for the 2023-24 academic year is $3,900. 

Health Insurance Waiver

If you already have comparable coverage and would like to waive the enrollment and have the student insurance premium removed from your bill, you must submit the waiver form at This form typically becomes available in early June. 

Please note:

  • The health insurance waiver is now available and must be completed annually.
