Can I get MassHealth as a FT grad student with a small income?

I'm a full-time graduate student & MA resident about to turn 26 in August and lose my parent's health insurance. My school offers health insurance, but it costs $3000 for the year, which I cannot afford. I have looked into applying for MassHealth but it seems like I am not guaranteed to be approved since I do have coverage available from my school.

I have checked the MA Health Connector website, and there is no info for someone in my situation.
To complicate matters, I will have a FT (temporary) job when I apply for MassHealth this summer, but the job will end in late August. My school year begins in Sept.
This is a huge headache, and ironically I'm studying a health profession and cannot find anyone that knows the answer. My school is not helpful.
Has anyone had experience with this or knows the correct way to proceed?
