To Our Students and Parents:

With the current level of education costs, we have had a concern for the student who suffers an illness or accident and has to withdraw from classes before the semester is completed. In some instances, it may mean not only the loss of time invested in studies, but also the loss of the semester's costs.

This is to advise you of the availability of an insurance program, the Tuition Refund Plan, which could minimize the financial portion of the loss. This elective insurance plan provides coverage for tuition, room and board charges, and extends and enhances the Institute's published refund policy. Under this plan, you may receive a 70 percent refund of your semester payment even after the Institute's own refund policy has expired.

The Tuition Refund Plan is provided by A.W.G. Dewar, Inc., a commercial insurance vendor, and is independent of the University. We are merely informing students and parents of this plan as an available option. The coverage section describes the plan in detail. It is important that those who wish to participate online submit the application and premium by the first day of Fall Semester classes (August 28, 2017). Online applications will not be accepted after this date.

Any questions regarding the Tuition Refund Plan may be directed to A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. at 617-774-1555.
