Siena College




June, 2015

Dear Family:

Students who suffer a serious illness or accident are at times compelled by these circumstances to withdraw from Siena College before the term's end, forgoing both the time and the tuition they have already invested in their classes. We are concerned with helping you protect your investments, and are therefore pleased to inform you of a valuable insurance program, the Tuition Refund Plan.

The Tuition Refund Plan (TRP) is administered by A.W.G. Dewar of Quincy, Massachusetts and extends and enhances the College's published refund policy.

In the event of a withdrawal due to medical reasons, the TRP assures you an 80% refund (coverage is limited to 60% in case of withdrawal due to a mental health condition) even after the College's own refund policy has expired. This is especially beneficial for students who are forced to withdraw and later return to repeat lost credit hours. Please assess the suitability of this coverage for your student.

The chart below illustrates how the Tuition Refund Plan (TRP) complements our refund schedule for Tuition charges.

Note: Per the College's Catalog, fees are not refundable.

The coverage section describes the plan in more detail. Please read it carefully. This is a voluntary program. If you wish to subscribe online, please complete the application and submit it with payment of the appropriate amount. In order to be accepted, your application must be submitted prior to September 8, 2015. Applications cannot be accepted on or after this day.

If you have any questions you may contact A.W.G. Dewar at (617) 774-1555.
