Deposited student next steps. 

If you are an incoming freshman or first-year transfer student, you are eligible to live in University-sponsored housing. The first step to reserve your space in University-sponsored housing, is to submit a housing deposit.

Submit your housing form

Once you have submitted your housing deposit, you must fill out the Housing Form by May 15, 2017. This required form establishes your residence hall contract, asks about your roommate preferences, and collects your emergency contact information.

Please note: You can request a roommate on your Housing Form by entering their full name, MCPHS ID number, and date of birth. That person must also ask to be your roommate for the Office of Residence Life to honor the request. If you are requesting to live with multiple people, each person must list everyone mutually. Roommate requests may take priority over other requests including roommate profile questions, housing style preferences, and Living/Learning applications. Room assignments are decided by the Office of Residence Life. For additional information, please visit our Housing FAQs page.

Incoming freshmen who attend one of the July Orientation sessions will be able to move into the residence halls on August 30, 2017. Incoming freshmen and transfer students who are planning to live in University-sponsored housing and will attend Orientation on August 29th will move in on August 28, 2017. If you need to arrive to campus prior to your move in date, you will need to fill out an arrival form, which will be available here during the summer.

Please Note: Housing deposits are non-refundable after May 1. Cancellation fees may apply if you cancel your housing contract after May 15.

Submit Housing Form

Updated Roommate Request Form

Students who have already submitted a housing form and would now like to update their roommate or housing preferences may do so by filling out the Update Roommate Request Form. Please do not fill out another Housing Form. Requests after May 15, 2017 may not be honored. All roommate requests MUST be mutual and requested by all students. If residents fill out multiple requests, the most recent request will be used. Please include the following information for each person you would like to live with: Name, MCPHS ID number, and hometown. All three must be included for the request to be considered.

The Office of Residence Life does its best to honor requests. However, in some situations this is not possible. If you have questions regarding this process, please contact Residence Life at

Special Housing Accommodations

To request housing accommodations on the basis of a disability or medical condition (including allergies), please complete a Student Request for Services Form indicating your need for a housing accommodation. This form is sent directly to Disability Support Services (DSS). DSS will require medical documentation completed by a licensed healthcare professional that can provide specific information regarding the disability or medical condition and the functional limitations experienced as a result of the disability as it relates to housing.

Housing accommodation requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the Director of Disability Support Services and the Director of Residential Living and Learning. All housing application deadlines (including housing accommodation request, submission of documentation, deposit, and housing application,) must be met by May 15th in order for timely reviews of accommodation requests.

The Office of Student Affairs offers a number of resources designed to make finding off-campus housing as easy and convenient as possible. Questions about living off campus? Contact us at


The Center for Campus Life offers commuter students the option to rent a locker on campus for the academic year (September through May). Renting a locker allows commuter students to securely store non-food items while attending classes. Locker rentals are available on a first come, first serve basis in the Fennell, White, and Griffin buildings.

Price for the 2017-2018 academic year:
1/3 sized locker: $15
1/2 sized locker: $30

You may register for a locker beginning on Monday, August 14, 2017 at 10 p.m. Please note: You are responsible for providing your own lock and responsible for all the items stored in the locker; however, the locker remains the property of MCPHS.

MBTA Information

Whether you are taking the light rail known as the “T” or the commuter rail, many students take advantage of the public transportation options offered by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA). As an MCPHS student, you can purchase your semester pass through the University at a discounted rate if you submit your payment by the published deadline.

The deadline to purchase a discounted MBTA pass for the Fall 2017 semester has passed. Check back this fall for information about purchasing a Spring 2018 semester pass.

Commuting students stand to benefit most from purchasing a pass if they use the MBTA as their primary method of transportation to campus. For more information about the Charlie Card and MBTA fares, you can visit:

Before you arrive on campus, you must complete your required immunizations and determine whether you will enroll in the University’s health insurance plan. Below you will find information about completing your immunizations and information on how you can waive the University’s health insurance plan, if you already have one that meets our standards.


To ensure your own health and safety, as well as the health and safety of those around you, your required immunizations and titers must be completed prior to your first academic term. The easiest way to become compliant with MCPHS and state immunization requirements is to complete your immunizations through your primary care provider before you arrive at school.

To track your immunization records and compliance, the University works with CastleBranch, a confidential health information service. MCPHS will send you an email with instructions on how to set up an account with CastleBranch. Once you successfully create your profile, you will be prompted to upload the completed form.

Please be aware of the following:

  • You will pay a one-time fee of $25 to CastleBranch to create your CastleBranch account. Instructions about payment will be provided on the payment step of the online order process. You will have direct access to your account to monitor your own personal immunization compliance in conjunction with the company's tracking.
  • It is strongly recommended that you save a copy of your completed immunization form and your immunization records. Should any compliance questions arise, it is important to have your records immediately accessible to you.
  • Students who are not compliant with University immunization requirements may be subject to administrative withdrawal from MCPHS.
  • Authorized officials at MCPHS have access to student immunization records in order to monitor compliance.

Any questions about immunization records or requirements should be directed to CastleBranch at or  888.723.4263. All immunization information must be received by CastleBranch by April 15 for summer enrollment and July 15 for fall enrollment.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact Pat Ramsay, Director of Student Compliance, at 617.735.1105 or

Please note that students who are not in compliance with the MCPHS and state immunization requirements before the start of classes may not be allowed to move into MCPHS-sponsored housing. Additionally, failure to comply may result in a delay in your beginning classes and a hold being placed on your student account.

Health insurance

According to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and MCPHS policy, all students (regardless of enrollment) must be covered by a comprehensive health insurance program. The University makes available a general policy, provided by an independent insurance carrier, which meets these standards. Students will be automatically enrolled in this plan unless a waiver (which must be renewed annually) is completed and received by Student Financial Services. The health insurance waiver is available now for summer start students and will be available in mid-June for students starting in the fall. To fill out the waiver, visit If you need assistance, please call 1.800.437.6448.

All international students must enroll in the plan with the exception of:

  1. Those international students whose sponsoring institutions have a signed agreement with MCPHS that complies with the University’s health insurance waiver requirements.
  2. International students with a plan for which their health insurance company’s primary home office is based in the United States AND the policy provides comparable coverage to the University's student health insurance plan.

International students who do not fall under conditions 1 or 2 above MUST purchase the University’s student health insurance plan and therefore are not eligible for a waiver.

Freshman Students

MCPHS requires an official copy of your final high school transcript showing all final grades and date of graduation to complete your admission record. Please note that failure to successfully complete coursework or graduate may result in rescinding our offer of admission. Final transcripts must be received before the start of classes or a hold may be placed on your account.

Final transcripts should be submitted before July 15 and may be uploaded electronically by your guidance counselor to your Common Application record or mailed directly from the high school in a sealed, signed envelop.

If you have completed an AP or IB exam or taken college level courses and would like to received advanced credit you must fill out our Request for AP, IB, or Transfer Credit Form. In addition to completing the form, official score reports and/or college transcripts should be submitted before July 15. You may continue to submit documents after this date for credit, however these changes will not be reflected in the schedule you receive at Orientation in July. Please keep in mind that MCPHS cannot award credit until both the Request for Credit Form and official scores or official transcripts have been received.

Transfer and Graduate Students

MCPHS requires an official transcript showing all final grades from all colleges/universities you have attended in order to complete your admission record. Please note that failure to successfully complete coursework with a C or higher may result in a change in your starting academic year or rescinding our offer of admission. Final transcripts must be received before the start of classes or a hold will be placed on your account preventing you from being registered for classes.

Final transcripts and official score reports should be mailed directly from your high school, college/university, or testing agency in a sealed, signed envelope to:

During Orientation, you will have the chance to meet with an Academic Advisor to understand your study plan requirements and to add or drop elective courses. Most MCPHS programs are lock-step, which means that students do not have the flexibility to deviate from the curriculum as it is laid out in the University catalog. Therefore, they do not graduate faster or slower than other students in their program.

  2. You meet our admission requirements.
  3. You will pursue a full course of study.

Complete your SEVIS registration

Arriving in the United States is a very important step, which you should prepare for.

You have 30 days to enter the country before your official program start date, which is registered in SEVIS by a member of the international admission team. You must report to the Center for International Studies by your program start date, or you will not maintain your status. We suggest that you contact the Center for International Studies immediately once you enter the country so that there is no question of your arrival.

All international students studying at MCPHS on an F-1 student visa must complete SEVIS registration during the first two weeks of each semester. You will need to bring photocopies of the following documents to the Center for International Studies to complete this requirement:

  • Your current course schedule
  • Your I-94 card
  • Your passport identification pages
  • Your visa (if applicable)
  • Proof of local address

If living on campus in an MCPHS residence hall, list the hall’s name and your room number on the SEVIS registration form.

If living off campus, provide a copy of a utility bill, bank statement, or a copy of your lease.
