Non-Resident Student Drivers

Massachusetts state law requires that all full-time Massachusetts college students who operate a motor vehicle that is registered in another state, but which remains in the Commonwealth of MA for a period exceeding 30 days between September 1 of any year and August 31 of the following year, file a Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles “Non-Resident Student Driver Statement” application. This statement must be completed regardless if the student parks on campus. State law requires MGH Institute of Health Professions to post the following notice to all students who are not Massachusetts residents:

“It is unlawful for a non-resident student to fail to file a non-resident driver statement with the police department located in the same city or town as the school or college attended, in accordance with section 3 of chapter 90 of the Massachusetts general laws. Failure to file such a statement is punishable by a fine not to exceed $200.00.”

We are required by the Commonwealth to keep a record and provide proof to the state that students have been apprised of the law.

How to Apply and Obtain Your Decal
  1. Submit the completed “Non-Resident Student Driver Statement” to the Boston Police Department at the following address: Boston Police Department, 20 Vine Street, Boston, MA 02129
  2. Please email a copy of the completed “Non-Resident Student Driver Statement” to the Office of Campus Services at campusservices [at] mghihp.edu.
  3. Once the completed form is received, the Office of Campus Services will then issue a free, Commonwealth of Massachusetts non-resident student driver decal.
  4. The decal should be affixed to the upper-center portion of the front windshield of the student’s vehicle (behind the rear-view mirror).
  5. Students must re-apply and receive a new decal each year they are an IHP student. Decals are valid September 1- August 31 of each year.
