Health insurance

State law requires that all students taking nine or more semester hours have health insurance (Massachusetts General Law Chapter 15A, Section 18); however, it may be waived if the student's own insurance provides him or her with comparable coverage. For more information, visit Health Insurance.

MassPIRG

The Massachusetts Public Interest Research Group (MassPIRG) is an independent statewide student organization that works on issues such as environmental and consumer protection, hunger, and homelessness. The MassPIRG fee is applicable only to fall and spring semesters. The fee is assessed to all credit students at $9 and payment is voluntary. Students can elect to pay or waive the fee, if desired. Visit your HCC Online Services student account to view transaction details and make payment. To waive the fee, submit a MassPIRG Waiver Form.
