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 University does not receive proof of health insurance coverage, the student will be automatically enrolled in and billed for the University’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.

Once students have registered for six (6) or more credits they will be eligible to waive the student health insurance by logging into the Student Account Center through the Student Portal.
