Southwestern University




Dear Students and Parents:
Since a college education represents a substantial investment of both time and money, we would like to bring to your attention a tuition, room, and board insurance plan that is being offered to Southwestern University students by A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. The Tuition Refund Plan (TRP) is a private insurance program that supplements the refund policy of Southwestern University. The plan covers up to 100% for injury and sickness withdrawals and up to 60% for mental health withdrawals, in accordance with the policy terms and conditions. Please see the coverage section for additional information.

The chart below indicates how this program supplements the University’s own refund schedule for a typical semester should you withdraw due to illness or accident.

During fourth full week of classes40%60%100%
During fifth full week of classes30%70%100%
After the fifth full week of classes0%100%100%

Participation in the Tuition Refund Plan offered by A.W.G. Dewar is entirely optional, and the University's refund program is applicable whether or not you enroll in the Plan. Southwestern University students that started prior to Fall 2013 and have been continuously enrolled are not automatically enrolled in the Dewar Plan. To enroll in the Tuition Refund Plan you must submit your application and payment before the opening day of classes, August 25, 2014. Applications cannot be accepted on or after this date.

The cost for full coverage in the Dewar Tuition Refund Plan for the 2014-15 academic year is $298.00, which includes both the Fall and Spring semesters. For upper-classman without institutional room and board, the cost is $228.00. If you want to insure one term only or an amount lower than the full semester costs, the application section will also provide students the option to insure their net tuition on a per semester basis.

Please contact A.W.G. Dewar directly at (617) 774-1555 if you have any questions regarding the Tuition Refund Plan.
