Tuition Refund Plan

TCU wants to be certain that you have an opportu­nity to protect your financial commitment in case of illness or accident. In an effort to minimize any potential financial loss, TCU has arranged with A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. to provide an insurance program that will provide coverage for tuition costs if medical problems, including mental health issues, require withdrawal from school before a semester ends.

The Tuition Refund Plan (Plan) is a private insur­ance plan administered by A.W.G. Dewar that complements and enhances the University’s published tuition refund policy. Participation in the Tuition Refund Plan represents a contract between the student and A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. Stu­dents who withdraw due to medical problems are assured, in most cases, of an 80% refund of tuition throughout the semester even after the University’s refund schedule has expired. The chart below illustrates how the Tuition Re­fund Plan supplements TCU’s tuition refund schedule for students who completely withdraw from the University due to medical problems, including mental health withdrawals.

TCU offers the Tuition Refund Plan as a service to our students and their families. Undergraduate students enrolled for 12 hours or more are automatically enrolled in the Tuition Refund Plan for the fall and spring semesters. The charge for the Plan will be included in the first bill of each fall and spring semester. Students who do not wish to participate in the Tuition Refund Plan can opt out of the Plan by waiving coverage through the online Tuition Refund Plan waiver process. The fall deadline for opting out of the Tuition Refund Plan and waiving coverage is 5:00 P.M.—CST on August 25, 2017. Even though you may choose to waive coverage by opting out of the plan, we urge you to carefully consider the suitability of the Tu­ition Refund Plan for your family since University tuition refunds due to medical withdrawals are not processed by TCU outside of the University’s standard refund policy.
