Student Health Insurance
All NSCC matriculated students taking nine or more credits at NSCC are required to have health insurance as required by the Massachusetts' Universal Health Insurance law. Matriculated students are those enrolled in a program of study.

Health insurance is available through North Shore Community College.
NSCC students must waive, pay or authorize the College to cover this charge with their expected financial aid. Enrollment in Health Safety Net, Children's Medical Security Plan or MassHealth Limited is not a "health benefit program of comparable coverage" as required by the regulation. International insurances are NOT acceptable for waiving Student Health Insurance.

Fall 2014 Insurance Coverage
NSCC student health insurance is provided from September 1, 2014 – August 31, 2015. Health insurance can be waived if you have proof of comparable health insurance.

Health Insurance and Drop for Non-Payment
Students who register prior to the semester payment due date must pay or waive their health insurance by the due date to avoid having their classes dropped for non-payment. Those students who register after the semester due date must pay or waiver their health insurance at the time of registration to avoid having their classes dropped for non-payment.
Fall 2014 Payment Due Date: Thursday, July 31, 2014, at 5:00 p.m.
