Brandeis University




July 25, 2016

Dear Brandeis Students and Parents,
Given the substantial financial commitments that students and their families must make to pursue a course of study at Brandeis University, we have become increasingly committed to find ways to protect the financial investment of Brandeis families in the educational enterprise. Of particular concern are those students who, through illness or accident, may be required to leave school in the middle of a semester, with the subsequent loss of funds already invested in that semester's fees.

Accordingly, Brandeis is pleased to advise you of an insurance program offered by A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. called the Tuition Refund Plan (TRP) as a way of protecting your investment at a reasonable cost. This elective plan provides coverage for Tuition, Room, and Board charges.

TRP works in concert with the existing refund policy as published in the Brandeis University Bulletin. Subscribers are assured a 70% refund throughout the term, even though Brandeis' own refund policy may have expired at the time of withdrawal. The chart below illustrates how TRP works to complement Brandeis' current refund policy:

Prior to First Day of Class100%0%100%
On or Before Second Friday75%0%75%
On or Before Fifth Friday50%20%70%
After Fifth Friday0%70%70%

Note: Please refer to the Bulletin or the University's refund policy on Room and Board charges.

Brandeis University is pleased to offer the Tuition Refund Plan as an option for students and parents. We wish to stress that this option is offered as a service through A.W.G. Dewar and as such is not administered by Brandeis University. We suggest that you carefully read the coverage section concerning the Plan. It is vital that those who wish to participate online submit the application by the first day of classes. Applications cannot be accepted after this day. Should you have any questions, please call A.W.G. Dewar directly at (617) 774-1555.
