About us

GradGuard is the leading embedded insurance platform that helps schools educate and protect students from the risks of college life.

Since our founding, we have pioneered the development of the most relevant insurance programs for the collegiate market.

Today, we are the number one provider of tuition and renters insurance programs in the nation.

Our history

GradGuard was founded in 2009 by John Fees and Bill Suneson as a venture of Next Generation Insurance, a national leader in creating innovating digital insurance distribution platforms.

For nearly 20 million students and families, paying for college is not risk free and one that's too important to leave unprotected. We help students and families overcome financial losses when the unexpected happens. GradGuard's mission is rooted in student success and college completion.

Today, a network of more than 400 colleges and universities rely on GradGuard to help students and families overcome losses that can disrupt their college education.

GradGuard's advanced technology platform is growing quickly and now enables it to implement specialty insurance programs in the complex ecosystem of higher education
