*Students enrolled in 9 or more credits are required by Massachusetts law to carry health insurance. The College contracts with University Health Plans​ to provide coverage through Blue Cross Blue Shield. Optional dental insurance​ is also available. Students covered under another health insurance plan that can be used in Massachusetts may waive participation in the Babson College Plan. Students with coverage from insurance carriers outside the U.S. or coverage by foreign National Health Service programs may not waive participation.

Students in the Blended Learning program are considered enrolled at half-time status and are therefore neither required nor eligible for the College's health insurance. ​​​​​​​​​​​​
