Kenyon College




To Our Students and Parents:
With the current level of education costs, we have a concern for the student who suffers a serious illness or accident and has to leave Kenyon before the semester is completed. In many instances it means not only the loss of time invested in studies, but also the loss of the semester's costs. In recent years, more than 10 students per year were forced to withdraw for medical reasons. To assist families, we are pleased to advise you of an insurance program, the Tuition Refund Plan (T.R.P.), which will minimize the financial portion of the loss.

This elective insurance plan provides coverage for tuition, board and room charges. Room rate coverage is restricted to the standard double occupancy fee. Adjustments in coverage are not made for variations in the actual dormitory living arrangement. Accordingly, the costs insured for the 2017/2018 academic year are $63,820.

This Plan significantly extends and enhances the College's published refund policy. Subject to policy conditions, you are assured of a 100% refund throughout the term, even after the College's refund period has expired, for a medical/physical withdrawal. This is especially beneficial when you are forced to withdraw and then return for a later term. In effect, you will not have to pay to repeat lost educational credits. The chart below illustrates how the Tuition Refund Plan complements our refund schedule for tuition, room and board for withdrawal due to medical/physical reasons.

If the Withdrawal Occurs During:College Refunds:The T.R.P. Refunds:Student Receives:
First Two Weeks80%20%100%
Third Week60%40%100%
Fourth Week40%60%100%
Fifth Week20%80%100%
Balance of Semester0%100%100%

For medical/mental health withdrawals, the T.R.P. pays 60% of costs insured.

Please Note: If a student withdraws from Kenyon College prior to completing 60% of the semester, Federal regulations require the College to prorate the Federal financial aid that has been earned based on the number of days in attendance. In addition, the same calculation will be used to determine eligibility for Kenyon College funded need based financial aid. These financial aid adjustments may create a balance due on the student's account and the benefits available under the Tuition Refund Plan for medical withdrawal can be helpful in meeting your financial obligations.

We are providing the Tuition Refund Plan as an option for students and parents. It is vital that those who wish to participate online submit the application and premium by the opening date of College. Online applications cannot be accepted after opening day.

Sincerely yours,

Shirley F. O'Brien
