Mount Holyoke College




July, 2014

Dear Students and Parents:
Following is information on the Tuition Refund Plan (TRP), an insurance program offered by A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. that provides plan participants with a substantial refund of Mount Holyoke College's comprehensive fee paid by them (either directly or through loans) if a student is forced to withdraw from the College due to personal illness or accident. The comprehensive fee includes tuition for day students and tuition, room and board for residential students.

This plan complements and significantly extends Mount Holyoke College's current refund policy. Plan participants are assured of an 85% refund from Dewar throughout the semester for that portion of the comprehensive fee, which the College would not normally refund when a student is forced to withdraw due to medical reasons. The chart below illustrates how the TRP works in conjunction with the College's tuition refund policy.

Note: Refer to the College Catalogue for the refund policy for room, board, and other charges.
