  • Required Health Forms for International Students

    International Health FormsMassachusetts State Law requires all college students to have a physical examination and submit a required Health Form with medical history and a certificate of immunization. Click on the links below for a printable PDF of the health forms.

    Students should complete pages 1, 2, and 5. Your physician, doctor, or health care provider MUST complete pages 3 and 4 (the sections for physical examination and certificate of immunization).

    Once complete, Health Forms must be returned to the Dean College Health Services office PRIOR to the student’s arrival on campus. The Forms can be emailed to, faxed to +1 508-541-1925 (Attn: Dean College Health Services) or mailed to Health Services, Dean College, 99 Main Street, Franklin, MA 02038 USA.

        Student Health Insurance

        Massachusetts State Law also requires all full-time and part-time college students enrolled in 9 or more credits to participate in a qualifying student health insurance program or in a health insurance plan with comparable coverage.

        Dean College offers a comprehensive Student Health Plan (SHP) that exceeds the minimum standards required by the state of Massachusetts. It is available to students without a health insurance plan, for students who would like to supplement their own health insurance, or for those who do not participate in a SHP plan. The College's health plan, offered by Consolidated Health Plans (CHP), is specifically designed to meet student needs. It provides 24 hour a day coverage for a full year, from August to August, and provides coverage in the Dean College/Franklin/Milford area. The Dean College Student Health Plan also provides coverage for services anywhere in the United States and abroad.

        Coverage through insurance carriers owned and operated outside the United States or coverage through foreign national health service programs are not in compliance with Massachusetts State regulations and will not provide the student with comparable health insurance coverage.

        To ensure compliance with Massachusetts State law, all international students are automatically enrolled in and charged for the Dean College Student Health Plan. Learn more about the Student Health Plan by reading our Student Health Insurance Plan Brochure.
