Emerson College Grad Students




Dear Emerson Graduate Students and Parents:

In an effort to help protect the financial investment of our families, we've partnered with A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. to offer you the opportunity to purchase elective insurance coverage for your student's tuition and mandatory fees.

The Tuition Refund Plan (TRP) is an insurance plan that minimizes the financial loss you may experience should you need to leave Emerson in the middle of a semester. The TRP refund covers 80% of tuition and mandatory fees for medical and mental health withdrawals.

The TRP works in concert with Emerson's existing refund policy as published in the Emerson College Catalog. Subscribers are assured a refund throughout the term, even though Emerson's policy may have expired at the time of withdrawal.

The chart below shows how TRP works for a medical leave to complement Emerson's current refund policy:

Fourth Week40%40%80%
Fifth Week20%60%80%

If you are interested in participating in the Tuition Refund Plan online for the spring semester, please submit the application by the first day of classes, January 14, 2019. Online applications cannot be accepted after that date. If you have any questions about the Tuition Refund Plan, please contact Dewar, Inc. directly at (617) 774-1555.
