Tuition Insurance Available for Students

There’s no way of foreseeing medical or personal issues that force students to withdraw from classes. If you don’t have proper coverage you could lose some, or all, of the money you have paid. This year, the GradGuard Protection Plan is available for tuition reimbursement in cases of emergency.

By paying one percent of the cost of tuition, the GradGuard Tuition Protection Plan can reimburse your tuition, housing and certain other payments if you need to withdraw in certain cases. If a student withdraws for reasons like a serious illness or injury, mental health disorder or the death of a tuition payer, the student will be reimbursed.

To get a quote or learn more about this optional insurance, call 1 (866) 724-4384 or visit the program website.
