Upon admission to Boston College, exchange students are automatically enrolled in the BC student medical insurance plan. Massachusetts law requires international students to have medical insurance underwritten by a U.S.-based insurance carrier. All exchange students are required to be insured through the BC medical plan. Enrollment in the Boston College Medical Plan is mandatory and may not be waived. Exchange students will be billed for the BC Medical Plan.
Massachusetts State Law requires all registered full-time students, part-time and full-time health science students and part-time visa carrying students to show proof of the required immunizations. The immunization forms are included in the acceptance packet and should be done before arrival.
