Dear Yale University Students and Parents:
We are pleased to bring to your attention a Tuition Refund Plan (TRP), which will be offered to Yale students again this year by A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. This is a private insurance program designed to protect the student by alleviating the loss of funds paid for tuition, room and board if complete withdrawal from school for medical reasons – illness or accident – becomes necessary at any time during the term. The TRP, in conjunction with Yale’s published refund policy, assures the student of a refund of eighty percent of funds paid for tuition, room and board. The insurance significantly extends and enhances Yale’s refund policy and reduces the risk of lost funds due to medical withdrawal.

Participation in the TRP program offered by A.W.G. Dewar is entirely optional. Yale University does not endorse this or any other private tuition insurance program, but we urge you to read the coverage section and consider the suitability of the TRP for you. Should you decide to participate in the Dewar Plan online, you must submit your application and payment by the opening day of the term. Applications cannot be accepted after that date.

If you have any questions about the Plan, please contact Jack Strain at Dewar. His telephone number is (617) 774-1555.
