Curry College's open enrollment policy allows you to take most undergraduate continuing education courses simply by registering for the course. Applications for admission, entrance examinations, and College Board Examination scores are not required. Credits earned for individual courses taken at Curry College may be applied to a certificate or degree program. The exceptions to the open enrollment policy are Curry College's ACCEL Nursing program and Continuing Education cohort programs which require an application and acceptance prior to enrollment.

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:

  1. At least one dose of mumps and rubella vaccine(s) given at or after 12 months of age
  2. Two doses of live measles vaccine given at least one month apart beginning at or after 12 months of age
  3. A booster dose of tetanus-diphtheria within the last ten years
  4. 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

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires colleges and universities to provide a Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) with minimum statutory levels of coverage. Curry College provides this coverage to all students who are enrolled in at least 75%of the full time curriculum. Unless an insurance waiver is completed by the specified due date, insurance will be provided by the College.

For additional information on the Curry College sponsored student health insurance plan, brochures are available online at University Health Plans.

All students enrolled at least 75% of the full-time curriculum are required by Massachusetts State law to enroll in the Student Health Insurance or be covered by a health insurance plan with comparable coverage. To ensure compliance with Massachusetts law, undergraduate students registered for 9 or more credits are automatically billed for the Student Health Insurance Plan, unless a waiver form is completed before the deadline date of 09/14/2018.  Graduate students are not eligible for the Student Health Insurance Plan as these programs are made up of short term courses that meet once a week for 15 weeks or less per semester.

Insurance Rates for 2018-2019:
The rate for the 2018-2019 year is $2,986 for the full year and $1,741 for students starting in the spring 2019 semester. For additional information on the Curry College sponsored student health insurance plan, brochures are available online at universityhealthplans.com/curry.

Curry College provides this coverage to all students who are enrolled in at least 75% of the full time curriculum. Unless an insurance waiver is completed by the specified due date, insurance will be provided by the College  Students with coverage comparable to the Student Health Insurance Plan providing emergency and non-emergency care in the area where the student attends school may waive the Student Health Insurance assessed by the College.
