Essential Registration & Academic Information

As a new student at Gordon-Conwell, there are Registration and Academic Policies you need to be aware of before beginning class. 


By Massachusetts State regulations, you are required to have certain immunizations to take classes. Please submit the forms below as soon as possible if you have not already done so as part of the Admissions process. 

Health Insurance

All students enrolled in six (6) or more credit hours must have "suitable" health insurance, according to Massachusetts law. If you already have health insurance then you can complete an online waiver form.  Students who do not provide other "suitable" health insurance will be automatically enrolled and billed for Gordon-Conwell's student health insurance in order to remain in compliance with state law. For more information regarding Student Health Insurance click here.


Once you have submitted your Notification of Intent you can submit the Registration Form to pkiefer@gordonconwell.edu or submit it on OCF Day. Please see our current & upcoming course offerings online.  Diploma students will be automatically registered at the beginning of each semester.
