Lesley University




Lesley University takes the cost of higher education seriously. There are situations in which a student suffers a serious illness or accident and has to withdraw before the semester is completed. In many instances, this means not only the loss of time invested in studies, but also a financial loss of the semester's cost.

We are pleased to offer tuition insurance through the Tuition Refund Plan (TRP) that will help minimize the financial portion of such a loss. This elective insurance plan provides coverage for tuition, room and board charges for the academic year. Please note that students are automatically enrolled in this insurance program, unless they submit a waiver of benefits. This waiver is available via the student's LOIS account.

The University's refund policy provides a partial refund of tuition through the fourth week of classes. There is also a pro-rated withdrawal policy through the seventh week of classes for room and board. The Tuition Refund Plan provides up to a 100% refund (60% for mental health withdrawals) of tuition in the event of a complete withdrawal under the terms of the plan. If you elect to waive this coverage, you will be subject to the University's refund policies. Refunds for students receiving Title IV financial aid will be calculated in accordance with federal guidelines.

Coverage description and information is outlined on the Student Accounts Office website at www.lesley.edu/studentaccounts. Students are automatically billed for the premium cost on their student account statement.

To accept or waive the Tuition Refund Plan log into LOIS at www.lesley.edu/LOIS. If you choose to waive, the Tuition Refund Plan fee will be credited (removed) from your student account. You must waive this charge by August 15th for the fall semester and December 15th for the spring semester to avoid late payment fees being assessed to your student account.
