Immunizations & Insurance
Required Immunization Certificate
Massachusetts Law 105 CMR 220.600 requires Curry College to collect a certificate of immunization from all full time students. This applies to any continuing education or graduate student who is carrying a full time course load.
For Continuing Education (CE) students Curry defines full time as 12 or more credits during a semester including intensive courses falling within a semester. As an example, if a CE student takes 6 credits in Term 1 and six credits in Term 2, they would meet the definition of full time.
For Graduate students, Curry defines full time as 6 or more credits during a semester including intensive courses falling within a semester. A MBA student taking one 3 credit course in Term 1 and one 3 credit course in Term 2 would meet the definition of full time. A M.Ed. or MACJ student taking 6 or more credits during fall or spring semester would be considered full time.
If you know what your course load will be and you will meet the definition of a full time student, please plan ahead and file your certificate of immunization prior to or with your registration. All students who have not filed the certificate and who are found to be in full time status will receive a notice from Curry College that they have 30 days to file the certificate or future registration will be blocked.
Each full time student must provide a certificate of immunization that verifies the student has received the following:
- At least one dose of mumps and rubella vaccine(s) given at or after 12 months of age
- Two doses of live measles vaccine given at least one month apart beginning at or after 12 months of age
- A booster dose of tetanus-diphtheria within the last ten years
- Three doses of Hepatitis B vaccine
The certificate of immunization form and instructions can be obtained from any Campus Continuing Education and Graduate Studies Office.
Mandatory Health Insurance
Effective September 1, 1989, the Massachusetts law C.15A, s. 18 requires that every full-time and part-time student enrolled in an institution of higher learning in Massachusetts participate in a Student Health Insurance Program (SHIP) or in a health benefit plan with comparable coverage. A part-time student is defined as a student participating in at least 75% of the full-time curriculum or at least 9-credits in a given semester.
As a result, full-time and part-time students taking 9-credits or more are automatically billed for individual membership in the health insurance plan sponsored by their colleges or universities. Students must purchase the school-sponsored health plan or show proof of comparable coverage in an alternate health plan in order to enroll in the college/university of their choice.
Students must prove comparable coverage by completing a Student Health Insurance Waiver Form online at www.universityhealthplans.com.
A notice regarding Student Health Insurance enrollment and waiver deadlines will be mailed to your permanent address if you register for at least 9 credits. You will have 30 days to complete a waiver if you can prove comparable coverage - late waivers will not be considered.
The cost of the Curry-sponsored health plan for the full academic year 2010-2011 is $891 and the cost for the spring 2011 semester only is $507.
