Lafayette College




July 1, 2015

Dear Lafayette Students and Parents:

At Lafayette, we are concerned for the student who suffers a serious illness or accident and has to leave the College before the semester is completed. In many instances, such circumstances mean not only the loss of time invested in studies, but also a significant financial loss. We are pleased to make you aware of an insurance program called the Tuition Refund Plan (TRP) which can help to protect your educational investment.

The TRP is an optional insurance plan administered by A.W.G. Dewar of Quincy, Massachusetts and protects your educational investment by reimbursing up to 100% of tuition, fees, room, and board paid to Lafayette when a student is forced to withdraw due to a personal illness or accident. When combined with the College's published refund policy, reimbursement up to 100% of the tuition, fees, room, and board paid to the College can be possible. In the case of a withdrawal due to a mental health condition, the TRP covers up to 75% of these amounts paid to the College.
The cost of this optional insurance for the 2015-2016 academic year is $427.00 for students living in College provided housing and $329.00 for students living in non-College provided housing. Please carefully read the coverage section concerning the TRP and assess the plan's suitability for you. If you wish to enroll in the plan online, please submit your application and payment before Monday, August 31, 2015. Applications will not be accepted on or after the first day of classes.

At Lafayette College as well as other institutions, this plan has proven to be an effective means of protecting your educational investment and the College is pleased to present it for your consideration. Inquiries regarding the plan should be made directly to A.W.G. Dewar at (617) 774-1555.
