Dear Emory Students and Parents,
Emory University recognizes the healthy financial investment that our students and families make to gain a college education. We share your concern for students who may have to withdraw due to serious illness or an accident before the semester is completed. As a result, we are pleased to offer the Tuition Refund Plan through A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. to assist our families in protecting their tuition investment. This is a private insurance plan administered by A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. that enhances the University’s published refund policy. This plan is offered solely as a service to our students and families. Emory University does not receive any compensation for the Tuition Refund Plan.

All incoming first year students and continuing undergraduate students have the option of participating in this plan. The plan covers 80% of insured tuition, less any refund or credit due from the University for injury, sickness, and mental health withdrawals. Participation in the plan is voluntary and represents a contract between the student and A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. We urge you to carefully consider whether this plan may be appropriate for your family, as medical withdrawals are not refunded outside of the University’s standard refund policy. Please refer to the coverage page for details of the plan.

If you elect to waive this coverage, you will be subject to the University’s standard refund policies. Refunds for students receiving Title IV Financial Aid will be calculated in accordance with federal guidelines.

Interim Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs
