The cost of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Student Health plan in 2013–2014 is $1,944 for 12 months of coverage. Students who show proof of coverage through a comparable plan will have the insurance fee waived. If waiving the school's plan, you will also need to complete a waiver, which will be available in July 2013.

Students who are delinquent in making payments to New England Law are subject to exclusion from classes or dismissal from school. Matriculation is conditioned on full payment of law school obligations and is subject to cancellation at any time for nonpayment.
A student may not be permitted to take a final examination if he or she is financially delinquent on the day the examination is scheduled. Transcripts or other certification of a student's status will not be issued for a student whose law school account is in arrears. New England Law will assess interest on delinquent balances.
Payment of tuition and fees
Tuition and fees are payable in full in advance of each semester (for example,
in August for the fall semester and in December for the spring semester). For those students or parents who wish to pay on a deferred payment basis, the law school offers an interest-free installment plan. For further information, contact SallieMae Tuition Pay, One AMS Place, P.O. Box 100, Swansea, MA 02777, toll-free telephone: (800) 635-0120. Installment plan payments usually begin in June or July.
A student who chooses to withdraw from law school but wishes to retain the option of readmission must submit a written request to the dean for withdrawal without prejudice. The approval of this request is determined by the student’s academic standing and the status of his or her account with Student Accounts in the Office of the Controller. The Student Handbook of Rules and Regulations details academic requirements relating to withdrawal and information on readmission procedures.
Information on voluntary withdrawal is on the Voluntary Withdrawal page.
Refund checks are issued to students who have overpaid tuition and fees to the law school. These checks are not available to students until after the first day of class for each semester of overpayment. Refund calculations for students who are receiving Title IV federal aid (Federal Stafford or Perkins Loans) are determined in accordance with federal regulations.
