Health Insurance and Health Service Fees

ACTION NEEDED:  Tufts Health Services Office Required Student Medical History via Their Secure Online Portal and Completion of Immunization Form – DEADLINE: July 1.

Tufts University mandates that all full-time students have adequate Health Insurance, as determined by the Tufts University Health Services Office in order to be eligible for course enrollment at The Fletcher School, as well as be in compliance with the state of Massachusetts.

  • The Student Health Insurance Plan will automatically be charged along with tuition to all enrolled students who are scheduled to take three or more courses (these charges to your account will be visible through your Tufts eBill). Plan information can be found here. You can find details about the mandatory health fee here.
  • IMPORTANT NOTE:  All students who are on a J-1 Visa that is sponsored by either Tufts University or The Fletcher School MUST purchase the student health insurance plan offered by Tufts University for themselves and dependents.
  • STUDENT HEALTH PLAN WAIVER: If you have comparable U.S. health insurance, you may consult with the Tufts Health Services Office about the Student Health Insurance Plan charge being waived. If you are covered by a separate policy, please process a waiver request via SIS. Further details about the requirements to waive the student health insurance plan are available here.
  • DENTAL INSURANCE: Should you so choose, sign up for Dental Insurance by the deadline advertised on the health services website.
