Am I eligible for student health insurance?

All domestic undergraduate students registered with 9 credits or more—including programs at the DeMello International Center— are required to waive or enroll in the student health insurance plan. This includes students studying at Bunker Hill Community College, Middlesex Community College, or Urban College of Boston.


Any on-campus graduate students registered for 6 credits or more including programs at the DeMello International Centerare required to waive or enroll in the student health insurance plan.


Students who participate in the DeMello International Center are subject to the insurance requirement if they meet the eligibility requirements for undergraduate or graduate students.


All on-campus international students are required to enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan with the exception of international students whose sponsoring institution has a signed agreement with Lesley University that complies with the University’s waiver requirements, or international students whose insurance company’s primary home office is based in the U.S. and meets the University’s waiver requirements.


Students enrolled in an online program in Massachusetts (regardless of your state of residency), in a program that’s delivered at an off-campus location, or in a program delivered in a low-residency format, are not eligible to participate in the Student Health Insurance Plan.


Part-time students (less than 9 credit hours for undergraduate students or 6 credit hours for graduate students) are not eligible.
