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 InsuranceThe 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. The rate for the 2014-2015 year is $2,135 for the full year and $1,244 for students starting in the spring semester.
For additional information on the Curry College sponsored student health insurance plan, brochures are available online at University Health Plans.
Important Note for students enrolling in the summer 2015 semester:
Students continuing enrollment in the summer semester and who purchased health insurance through the College during fall 2014 or spring 2015 will be charged an additional $70 on their student account to extend coverage through the end of the summer semester. If you continue enrollment in the fall 2015 semester and purchase insurance through the College, the $70 assessed for summer 2015 will be credited back to your account.
Students required to purchase insurance for the first time due to enrollment in 75% of the full-time course load will be charged $599 for health insurance. If you have comparable coverage you can waive the insurance by logging in to universityhealthplans.com.

"I was ready to learn more about business and be more prepared in the world I was working in," explains Lynne Santangelo '14. "I really wanted to have a say, and I wanted people to respect me and my analytical skills. Curry has given me a foundation that has really helped me be a confident person and leader."
"When I thought about getting my MBA, it was really about how I could expand what I know and how I interact with my business," recalls Dawn Erickson '14. "How can I tell our employees that they should always be learning and developing if I'm not doing that myself?"
"Having completed the program I feel more confident in my abilities. I'm more knowledgeable and the capacity of what I can take on has been greatly expanded. With this program under my belt, I can do more. I have a better understanding of how the business world works." Read more...
