Health insurance requirements for Lesley students.
Massachusetts State Law requires all full-time and three-quarter-time students in campus-based programs to participate in the university-sponsored Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan or provide proof of having an alternate health insurance plan with comparable coverage.
Online and Off-Campus Students: If you are registered in an online program in Massachusetts, regardless of your state of residency, or if you are enrolled in a program that is delivered at an off-campus location, you are not required to participate in the Student Health Plan (SHP) or an alternate health plan.
Full-time or three-quarter-time status is based on registered credits, not classes, and your status for the semester will be determined as of the last date of the add/drop period. If you are in a campus-based program and are taking the following number of credits, you will be required to participate in the health insurance enrollment or waiver process.

If you intend to waive the student health insurance offered by the University and use your own health insurance, the company must be a U.S. based carrier.
The Lesley-sponsored Student Accident and Sickness Plan covers you during semester breaks, summer vacation, and even if you're studying abroad. You'll be covered for the period for which you paid premium.
For general information on insurance plan benefits or service issues, please contact the provider directly.
