Tuition Refund Plan (Optional Insurance)

Dartmouth College has an agreement with A.W.G. Dewar, Inc.(Dewar) to offer the Tuition Refund Plan (TRP). This plan is a form of insurance which supplements the Dartmouth College refund policy.

Should you decide to participate in the Dewar TRP plan, you must return the application form and full payment to Dewar before the student's first day of classes for the academic year. Applications cannot be accepted after these dates.

This private insurance program supplements the refund policy of Dartmouth College by ensuring the refund of 90% of tuition, room, board and required fees paid if a student withdraws, due to a qualifying illness or accident, after the beginning of an academic term. The refund to the student will only be of funds actually paid by or on behalf of the student. The amount refunded to the student will include loan disbursements, but will not include scholarships and grants. In some cases, the insurer may reimburse third parties, including the College, for scholarships and grants within the limits of the coverage available.

The chart below indicates how this program supplements the College's refund policy for a typical term if a student withdraws due to illness or accident.

If the Withdrawal Occurs During The College Refunds The TRP Refunds Total Refund
Week 1 90% 0% 90%
Week 2 or 3 75% 15% 90%
Week 4 50% 40% 90%
Week 5 25% 65% 90%
Week 6 until end of term 0% 90% 90%

Participation in the Tuition Refund Plan offered by Dewar is entirely optional. The College's refund policy is applicable whether or not you enroll in the TRP. Dartmouth College does not endorse this or any other private tuition refund program, but we urge you to read the enclosed brochure and consider the suitability of the TRP for you.

If you have any questions about the plan, please contact Dewar directly at (617) 774-1555 or click here.
