Types of Financial Aid

Health insurance is mandatory in Massachusetts for all full-time and part-time students (G.L. c.15A, § 18). In order to ensure compliance with Massachusetts’ mandate on health insurance coverage, all SSW students will now be automatically enrolled in and billed for the School's health insurance plan. Those students who have separate coverage are advised to waive enrollment.

Waiving Coverage

Those who elect not to enroll in the School's plan must have coverage under another plan that meets the requirements of the Qualifying Student Health Insurance Plan of Massachusetts.

Those who have their own coverage must provide the School with the name and address of their insurance company, policy number and a copy of the policy for verification.
