University of Rochester




Dear Parents and Students,
Given the substantial financial commitments that students and their families must make to underwrite a course of study at the University of Rochester or the Eastman School of Music, we are actively engaged in finding ways to protect the financial investment of UR & Eastman families. Of particular concern are those students who, through illness or accident, may be required to leave school in the middle of a semester, with a subsequent loss of funds already invested in that semester. Accordingly, the University offers an insurance program, the Tuition Refund Plan (TRP) through A.W.G. Dewar, Inc., as a way of protecting your investment at a reasonable cost to families.

This is a private insurance program that supplements the University of Rochester/Eastman School of Music refund policies. In cases of withdrawals due to accident, illness or a mental health condition as defined in the TRP plan, the family is assured up to an 80 percent refund throughout the semester.
We encourage you to read the coverage section carefully and determine the plan's suitability for your needs. If you wish to participate in the plan online, submit your application and payment by the first day of classes, August 30, 2017. Online applications cannot be accepted after this date.

For further information, please contact DEWAR directly at 617-774-1555.
