  • All law school students
  • Graduate students who have either enrolled in the Student Health Plan or have paid the health center fee
  • All other eligible students who have paid the health center fee
  • Students in special programs by prior arrangement

Health Center Holds:

  • A student will have a Health Center hold if the student has failed to provide complete documentation of immunizations in accordance with Massachusetts state law.
  • Deadlines for providing this information are as follows: the end of June for undergraduate students entering in the following fall; the beginning of December for undergraduate students entering in the following spring; one month prior to the beginning of a graduate student or law student’s program.
  • Health Center holds will prevent students from registering for an upcoming semester. The Health Center hold also will prevent a student's ability to complete "I Am Here."
