All students enrolled at least 75% of full-time (9 credits for undergraduate, 6 credits for graduate) status are required by law to have health insurance. A health insurance fee is therefore automatically added to all student accounts meeting this criterion. Coverage is effective August 15, 2014 through August 14, 2015, and is provided under a blanket policy issued to Emerson College. See Student Health Insurance for full details and instructions for waiving coverage.
