Goucher College





June 2020

Dear Goucher Students and Families,

A Goucher College education represents a substantial investment for you in both time and money. We are concerned for the student who might suffer a serious illness or accident and has to leave Goucher before the semester is completed, resulting in a loss of time and money devoted to education.

As in years past, we are partnering with A.W.G. Dewar to administer the Tuition Refund Insurance Plan which complements and enhances Goucher Collegeís published tuition refund policy. The Plan covers 75% of the insured tuition, fees, and room charges, less any refund or credit due from Goucher for injury, sickness and mental health withdrawals. The Plan does not refund college grants and scholarships credited. Participation in the Plan represents a contract between the student and A.W.G. Dewar.

All full-time undergraduate students will automatically be enrolled in the A.W.G. Dewar Tuition Refund Insurance Plan unless they complete the online waiver at: www.tuitionprotection.com/goucher by September 10, 2020. The charge for the Plan is $184 per semester and will be included on the initial fall bill, but removed if a waiver is completed online by the September 10th deadline. This online waiver process is both quick and easy.

The chart below illustrates how the Plan complements Goucherís refund schedule for Tuition and Mandatory Fees in the case of withdrawal due to medical or mental health reasons. The College Room refund policy is 100% through Week 1, then 0%. The Tuition Refund Plan would then refund 75% of the room charge for withdrawals after Week 1.

The Plan is being made available by Goucher College solely as a service to students and parents. Goucher College does not receive any compensation for the Tuition Refund Plan enrollment.
