Based on Massachusetts state regulations, Suffolk University must enroll students who are registered in at least 75 percent of a full time curriculum into a health insurance plan.

Students who already have comparable health insurance coverage can waive the health insurance fee charged by Suffolk University by clicking on the "Waiver" tab to submit the waiver.

For Fall 2015, the date students can starting submitting insurance waiver is to be announced.

Health Insurance

Medical insurance coverage is offered through University Health Plans. All students who do not notify Health Services that they are covered by a comparable policy of their own, will be automatically enrolled in the Suffolk Student Health Insurance Plan.
