Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute




An Important Announcement to Our Students and Parents

We are pleased to inform you of the continued availability of the Tuition Refund Plan, (T.R.P) which refunds your term tuition, room and mandatory fees (less any credit due you from RPI) in the event you are forced to withdraw because of a personal illness or accident. Students not residing on campus will be covered for tuition and fees.

This plan extends and enhances the RPI published refund policy. You are assured of a 75% refund throughout the term even after the RPI refund policy has expired. This is beneficial if you are forced to withdraw and then return for a later term. The coverage will provide substantial financial assistance in order to repeat lost education. The chart below illustrates how the Tuition Refund Plan complements the RPI refund schedule.

RPI is pleased to offer this optional Plan. We do ask that you read the coverage section carefully to determine the suitability of this Plan for you.

If you wish to participate online, you must submit the application by the opening date of the fall semester. Online applications cannot be accepted after the opening date.
