Please Read Carefully

All on-campus MCAD students (MFA, BFA, BSc, and graphic design certificate) must have health insurance.

By default, all MCAD students are enrolled in MCAD’s Student Health Insurance Plan, which is managed by Gallagher Student Health and Special Risk. This plan is not free; the cost is listed on your program's Tuition and Fees page. Students are billed on an annual basis beginning in fall semester. This is a one-time charge and is reflected on your invoice.


YES! I want MCAD's Student Health Insurance Plan.

If you would like to enroll in MCAD's Student Health Insurance Plan, you do not need to do anything. You will be automatically enrolled and billed for the plan as part of your MCAD tuition and fees.

NO! I have my own health insurance.

If you have your own health insurance and do not wish to enroll in MCAD's policy, you must complete the online waiver, otherwise you will be automatically billed for the policy. The MCAD Health Insurance Plan must be waived every year, even if it has been previously waived.

Starting May 15, you may waive the Student Health Insurance Plan for the upcoming policy year by completing the following:

  1. Go to: gallagherstudent.com/mcad
  2. Click on "Student Waive"
  3. Create a user account or log in
  4. Select "I want to Waive." You’ll need information found on your current health insurance ID card. Upon completing your online form you will be asked to review the information provided.
  5. Click “Submit.” Immediately upon submitting you will receive a reference number.
