Greetings Cambridge College Students:
We hope the week is going well and that you are settling into classes. Be sure to keep up with your coursework and attend classes. In addition, keep these reminders and upcoming events in mind:
Health Insurance Waivers
VERY IMPORTANT: If you have your own health insurance and are taking classes in Massachusetts, you will need to complete the health insurance waiver, so you are not charged for the College’s health insurance plan. You must do this by September 30, 2021. For more information, visit this page>>.
