Northwestern University, Graduate and Professional Students




August 2021

To All Northwestern University Graduate and Professional Students and Parents:

We are pleased to inform you about an insurance program offered to Northwestern students by A.W.G. Dewar, Inc., called the Tuition Refund Plan (TRP).

This is a private insurance program that supplements Northwestern's refund policies by providing a refund of 100% of tuition if, due to an illness, accident, or mental health condition a student takes a leave of absence or withdraws after the beginning of a quarter.

Dewar's TRP extends and works in concert with the published Northwestern University refund policies ( Subscribers are provided a 100% refund throughout the quarter even though Northwestern's own refund policies may have expired at the time of withdrawal. The proceeds may be used to pay any educational loan in the event the student withdraws or the money may simply be refunded to the family.

Participation in the Dewar TRP is entirely optional. Northwestern University does not endorse this or any other private tuition insurance program, but I invite you to read the coverage section and consider the suitability of the TRP for you and your family.

If you are interested in participating in the Dewar Plan online, you must submit the application and payment by September 21, 2021. Online applications cannot be accepted after that date. If you have questions about the plan, please address them to A.W.G. Dewar, Inc., (617) 774-1555.
