Harvard University




Dear Harvard College Students and Parents:
We would like to bring to your attention a tuition refund plan (T.R.P.), which will be offered to Harvard students again this year by A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. This is a private insurance program that supplements the refund policy of Harvard College by ensuring the refund of eighty percent of tuition, room, board and required fees if a student takes a leave of absence or withdraws due to illness or accident after the beginning of the academic term.

The chart below indicates how this program supplements the College's own refund schedule for a typical fall term should you withdraw due to illness or accident.

Weeks 5 through 850%30%80%
Weeks 9 through 1325%55%80%
After Week 130%80%80%

Participation in the Tuition Refund Plan offered by A.W.G. Dewar is entirely optional, and the College's refund program is applicable whether or not you enroll in the T.R.P.

Harvard University does not endorse this or any other private tuition program, but we urge you to read the coverage section and consider the suitability of the T.R.P. for you. Should you decide to participate in the Dewar Plan online, you must submit the application and payment by the opening day of classes, September 4, 2018. Online applications cannot be accepted after that date.

If you have any questions about the Plan, please contact Jack Strain at Dewar. His telephone number is (617) 774-1555.
