To Our Students and Parents:
We are pleased to advise you of an insurance program, the Tuition Refund Plan, which will, in case of a serious illness or an accident involving your student, assist in minimizing the financial portion of the loss. This elective insurance plan provides coverage for the comprehensive fee charges. A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. offers this Plan, underwritten by a member company of OneBeacon Insurance Group, at a cost of $685.00 for campus residents or students enrolled in affiliated foreign programs and $553.00 for students living off campus.

This Plan significantly extends and enhances the College’s published refund policy. You are eligible for a 100% refund throughout the term, even after the College’s policy has expired. 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 education credits. For medical/physical withdrawals, the Tuition Refund Plan complements our refund schedule for the comprehensive fees (tuition, standard room and board) as follows:

If the Withdrawal Occurs During:College Refunds:Tuition Refund Plan:Student Receives:

During the Third Week80%20%100%
During the Fourth Week50%50%100%
During the Fifth and Sixth Week25%75%100%
Balance of Term0%100%100%

Note: For mental health withdrawals, the Tuition Refund Plan pays up to 60% of costs insured.

Refunds for students receiving Title IV financial aid will be calculated in accordance with federal guidelines. Please refer to the College's catalog for complete details.

We are providing the Tuition Refund Plan as an option for students and parents. It is important that those who wish to participate online submit their application and premium by the College’s opening day of classes, Monday August 28, 2017. Applications cannot be accepted after the opening date. Please direct any questions to A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. at 617-774-1555.

Sincerely yours,
