Resources for New Students
Welcome new students. You’ve come to the right place to find answers to questions about health requirements, health insurance or any health related concerns you may have.
All Tufts students are required to be covered by health insurance (it’s a Massachusetts state law). All undergraduates and graduate students who are half time or more are billed and enrolled in the student health insurance plan. If you are covered by a separate policy, it must be through a U.S.-based insurance company and comparable to the student health plan.
If you are covered by a separate policy, please complete the Health Insurance Waiver on your SIS account. This waiver process is required every year and is available June 1st - July31st.
