Most colleges and universities do not provide 100% refunds but GradGuard Tuition Insurance can protect your investment. Our Tuition Insurance provides reimbursement when a student can’t complete an academic term due to an unforeseen, covered accident, injury or other covered reason.

What does Tuition Insurance Cover?

Covered reasons

Our plans provide peace of mind by reimbursing the financial losses if a student withdraws at any time during the semester for a covered reason as advised by a licensed medical professional for the covered term, which can include:

Covered serious injury or illness

Such as mononucleosis, COVID-19, or a severe head injury.

Chronic illness

Such as an auto-immune disorder or diabetes.

Mental health conditions

Such as stress, depression, or severe anxiety.

Connects families

If the insured student is admitted to the hospital during the covered school term, we can help make travel arrangements for their parents to visit.

Gets students home

We can make transportation arrangements if the insured student is seriously ill or injured during the term and needs to be moved to a different facility or is ready to go home after treatment.

If the insured student can’t drive home because they are sick or injured, we’ll arrange to have the insured student’s car driven back to their U.S. place of residence by an accredited, professional transport company.
