Medical Insurance Credit
graduate school of arts and sciences
For information about the health insurance for graduate students that is offered through the University, please visit this page.
In many cases, Boston College will cover part or all of the costs of the university-offered health insurance for graduate students. Graduate students receiving university financial support should consult with the appropriate Graduate Academic Dean to see if they meet eligibility requirements. Eligibility is determined by the University annually and is subject to change.
Once a student registers, s/he will be enrolled automatically in the university-offered health insurance—unless the proper waiver has been filed. At that time, the full cost of health insurance for that semester will be charged to the student's account. The University will then issue an account credit based on the student's eligibility.
The amount of health insurance costs covered by the University depends on the stipend a student receives. Please review the chart below to see the amount of credit that can be expected.
|Stipend Amount (per Semester)||Amount of Credit|
|$1,000 – $3,499||25% of health insurance cost|
|$3,500 – $5,499||50% of health insurance cost|
|$5,500 – $7,499||75% of health insurance cost|
|$7,500 and above||100% of health insurance cost
