To Our Students and Parents:

With the current level of education costs, we have had a concern for the student who suffers a serious illness or accident and has to leave Hamilton College before the semester is completed. In many instances, it means not only the loss of time invested in studies, but also the loss of the semester's costs.

We are pleased to advise you of the following insurance program, the Tuition Refund Plan (T.R.P.), which will minimize the financial portion of the loss. This elective insurance plan provides coverage for tuition, room and board charges. Accordingly, the costs insured for the 2017/2018 academic year are $65,650.

This Plan significantly extends and enhances the College's published refund policy. You are assured of up to a 75% refund throughout the term even after the College's own refund policy has expired. This is especially beneficial when you are forced to withdraw and then return for a later term. In effect, you will not have to pay to repeat lost education. The chart below illustrates how the Tuition Refund Plan complements our refund schedule for tuition costs. (See College catalog for College's refund share for room and board charges.)

We are providing the Tuition Refund Plan as an option for students and parents. It is vital that those who wish to participate online submit the application and premium by the opening date of College. Applications cannot be accepted after opening day. If you have any questions, please contact Dewar directly at (617) 774-1555.
