To Columbia University Students and Parents:
We are pleased to inform you that Columbia University has arranged to make available a tuition refund insurance plan offered by A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. This elective insurance plan provides coverage for tuition, room and board should a student suffer a serious illness or accident and withdraw from classes before the semester is completed.

The Dewar-offered plan significantly extends and enhances the University’s refund policy. When enrolled in the Dewar plan, students are eligible for up to an 80% refund throughout the semester if they withdraw due to a medical reason, even when their eligibility for a refund from the University may have expired.

NOTE: Please refer to the Columbia University published refund policy for specific information on refunds for tuition, room and board.

The University has made available the Tuition Refund Plan as an elective option for students and parents. Please review the coverage section for complete details. If you wish to purchase this coverage online, please submit the application by the first day of classes. Online applications will not be accepted after that date.

If you have any questions about the plan, please contact A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. directly at 617-774-1555, or email

Thank you for your careful consideration of this protection.
