Hobart and William Smith Colleges




To Our Students and Parents:
With the current level of education costs, we have had a concern for the student who suffers a serious illness or accident and has to leave Hobart and William Smith Colleges before the term is completed. In many instances, it means not only the loss of time invested in studies, but also the loss of the term's costs.

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, room, board and required term fees for students living on campus. Tuition, Pulteney meal plan, and required term fees are covered for students living off campus. Accordingly, the costs insured for the 2021/2022 academic year are $75,835 for on campus students and $61,805 for off campus students.

This Plan significantly extends and enhances the Colleges' published refund policy. You are assured of a significant refund throughout the term even after the College's own refund policy has expired. This is especially beneficial when you are forced to withdraw and then return for a later term. Please see Hobart and William Smith Colleges Catalogue for the Colleges' refund share for tuition, room and board charges.

The cost of this plan for the academic year is $606.00 for on-campus students and $494.00 for off-campus students. The coverage section describes the plan in detail. Please read it carefully. If you wish to subscribe to the plan online, please submit the application and payment by August 23, 2021, the first day of class, to be accepted. Online applications cannot be accepted after this date.

Since this plan has proven to be an effective means of protecting parents' investment in their children's education, we are pleased to present it for your consideration. Questions regarding the plan should be addressed to A.W.G. Dewar at (617) 774-1555.
