The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires all students enrolled at least ¾ time to have health insurance. All students are automatically billed the health insurance premium each academic year. If you have other insurance coverage you may remove this charge from your account by completing a health insurance waiver online, which documents your coverage. The Student Health Insurance Plan for graduates is $4,363. Do not include the health insurance charge in your budget if you are already insured.
Students wishing to audit a course pay two-thirds of the tuition.

In appreciation for the learning experience provided to our practicum students, Wheelock College issues one voucher per student to each site where students have been placed to complete a practicum (3-6 credits). Vouchers may be used only by persons employed by the site and cannot be transferred to persons outside the school system. Vouchers may only be used by persons able to demonstrate current employment at the practicum site to which the voucher was issued. The voucher must be signed by a member of the administrative staff to validate it for registration, and when you present vouchers for course registration you should be prepared to show proof of employment. Students will be responsible for payment of the $10 registration fee and general fee per credit.
Vouchers are valid for one calendar year immediately following the semester in which the Wheelock College student was placed at the practicum site with no extensions. No more than one voucher may be used per semester by any individual. Individuals enrolled in a Wheelock degree program may apply vouchers toward up to half the credits required for the degree. Individuals not enrolled in a degree program may use vouchers for up to four graduate courses.
