Getting Ready

The Incoming Student Guide, compiled by the Law Student Association in partnership with the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid, is another important resource.

Remember: Full-time Law students are billed on a per semester basis. The fall semester bills are due in August.

Students will be enrolled in university-sponsored Massachusetts health insurance if they do not choose to waive the coverage. More information about this Blue Cross Blue Shield plan can be found here.
