The Catholic University of America




June 2019

Dear Parents:
The Catholic University of America is pleased to offer the Tuition Refund Plan (TRP) through A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. as a way of protecting the substantial financial commitment that students and their families make to pay for an education at Catholic University. This plan protects those students who, through illness or accident, may be required to leave school during a semester.

Each and every year, a significant number of students experience an unexpected medical situation that results in their withdrawal from the University, but policy only allows for a partial refund of tuition, room and board within the first few weeks of the semester. After the end of the fourth week, students are not entitled to any refund, which can, in our experience working with students and families, present an obstacle for continued enrollment. We recommend you strongly consider participating in TRP to protect your investment.

TRP is a private insurance program that supplements the refund policy at The Catholic University of America. Subscribers are assured a refund throughout the term, even though the University’s own refund policy may have expired. A 75 percent TRP refund applies to medical withdrawals and withdrawals due to mental health reasons. Costs covered by the TRP program include tuition, room, board and mandatory fees. (Miscellaneous fees, including health insurance and course fees, are not covered.)

Participation in the Tuition Refund Plan is optional. If you do not participate in the TRP, any refund is limited to the amounts allowed by the University’s Tuition Refund Policy. Should you decide to participate in the TRP online, you must submit the application form and payment to Dewar by the first day of classes, August 26, 2019 (August 19th for the School of Law). Applications will not be accepted after these dates.
