  • $266.50 health insurance—students are required to have health insurance that provides medical coverage while they are attending NMH Summer Session; international students are required to purchase NMH insurance (U.S. medical providers cannot bill to overseas insurance companies, and travel insurance policies will not be approved by NMH Health Services); for U.S. residents, participation in NMH insurance is voluntary if they are covered under another adequate health insurance policy, which must be approved by NMH Health Services before the fee for NMH insurance can be waived
  • $275 non-refundable activities fee—required fee covers all on-campus social activities and most off-campus trips such as excursions to Boston, New York City, Six Flags amusement park, whitewater rafting, shopping malls, movie theaters

Spending Money

NMH spending accounts can be set up ahead of time when paying the tuition bill by including an extra amount designated for the student’s spending account. Funds can also be added throughout the summer at Payments Online on the Summer Session website. The amount depends entirely on the personal needs and habits of each student; $10–20 per week is adequate, but students obviously can spend much more. For students with NMH spending accounts, the NMH cashier’s office is open Monday through Saturday during posted hours.

For students who do not wish to set up an NMH account, the automatic teller machine (ATM) located in our student center is available at any time, and they can also access ATM funds while on off-campus trips.
