Emory University




July 2016

Dear Students and Parents:
We are pleased to inform you that Emory University has arranged with A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. to offer the Tuition Refund Plan (T.R.P.) to our students and parents to minimize the financial burden of losses incurred when a student suffers a serious illness or accident and has to leave Emory before completing the semester. These circumstances usually mean the loss of time invested in studies, and the loss of the semester's costs. This elective insurance program provides coverage for tuition, room and board charges.

The Plan coverage is designed to extend the University's published refund policy. You may receive up to a 70% refund of covered charges (subject to insured terms and conditions), even after the University's refund policy has expired. The chart below is a sample illustration of how the Tuition Refund Plan complements our refund schedule for tuition charges. If a student withdraws because of a physical illness, accident or mental health condition, the plan returns 70% of the insured semester tuition and fees.

For Room and Board*

The University prorates room refunds based on completion of the exit process. Board (Food Plan) refunds are prorated based on amount used. As with tuition, the Dewar Tuition Refund Plan covers the portion of housing and board plan charges not refunded by the University up to 70%.

We are providing the Dewar Tuition Refund Plan as an option for students and parents. Those who wish to participate online should submit their application by the first day of class in the Fall 2016 Semester. Online applications cannot be accepted after the first day of classes.

Please contact Dewar directly at (617) 774-1555, if you have any questions regarding the Tuition Refund Plan.
