Tuition Refund Plan...
Was originated in
1930 to protect the financial investment of students and parents in education. Today, over
1200 leading independent schools and colleges throughout North
America offer the Plan. Because
the cost of education today is a substantial investment, one which
is likely to be your second largest next to a home purchase, the
protection afforded by the Tuition Refund Plan is essential.
While most colleges
provide partial refunds for withdrawals, they are limited and
usually effective only when you withdraw early in the term. Subject to the program terms and conditions, this
Plan offers the unique benefit of a 85% refund of term tuition and
fees when you are forced to withdraw for medical reasons. The
Tuition Refund Plan dramatically enhances the college refund schedule
and provides more generous refunds throughout the entire term.
- Injury and Sickness Withdrawals
85% of the insured term tuition and fees, less any
refund or credit due you from the college, will be refunded
provided your physical condition is certified by a licensed
physician and forces you to completely withdraw from all classes
for the balance of the term.
Mental Health Withdrawals
85% of the insured term tuition and fees, less any refund
or credit due you from the college, will be refunded provided
your medical condition is certified by a licensed physician
and you have completely withdrawn from all classes for any
condition whose diagnosis is found in the DSM-V Manual.
In both cases
above, a complete withdrawal from the college is required.
This means you have given written notice that because of your
injury or sickness withdrawals you will not be able to complete the term and
you will not receive any academic credit.
A written statement from your doctor certifying the injury or
sickness and college verification will be required. All
Mental Health withdrawals will be classified in accordance
with the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and
Statistical Manual DSM-V.
