Massachusetts state law requires that all students be enrolled in a student health insurance program that meets the comparable benefits established by the state of Massachusetts. You may waive coverage if you have this coverage under a comparable benefit plan.

The Massachusetts Student Public Interest Research Group (MASSPIRG) is a statewide, student-directed, student-funded, nonpartisan advocacy organization working on environmental, consumer, higher education, voter registration, and hunger and homelessness issues. MASSPIRG student chapters across the state pool resources through a waivable fee each semester and hire professional staff to work with students on these issues. UMass Lowell students have voted to fund a MASSPIRG chapter on campus. Therefore, all students are assessed the $11 waivable charge each semester. Volunteer, leadership, and internship opportunities are available for students on campus. For more information about MASSPIRG, visit MASSPIRG.ORG.
