Colgate University




To: Colgate University Students and Parents

All of us at Colgate University, and especially those of us who advise students and their families, are concerned about students who suffer serious illness and accidents and have to leave the University before a semester is completed. In many instances it means not only the loss of time invested in studies, but also the loss of the semester's costs. Situations where families are forced to choose between major financial losses and their child's health are particularly difficult. We therefore urge you to consider the low-cost tuition insurance plan offer described below.

We are pleased to inform you that Colgate University offers the Tuition Refund Plan to minimize the financial portion of a loss due to illness, accident or other medical reasons. This elective insurance program, made available through A.W.G. DEWAR, Inc. (DEWAR), provides coverage for tuition, fees, and room. The DEWAR plan extends and enhances the University's published refund policy. In cases of medical withdrawals, the Tuition Refund Plan provides an 80% refund of insured fees throughout the term.

We are providing plan information and an application for your careful review. Please read the coverage page carefully before enrolling. If you wish to participate in the plan online, where you may choose your own level of coverage, please submit your application and payment by August 29, 2019. DEWAR will not accept applications after the first day of classes.

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

Yours sincerely,

Jason Shumaker
Director of Student Accounts
