Tuition Refund Plan

The Tuition Refund Plan is offered by A.G.W. Dewar and the following is reproduced from information provided by A.G.W. Dewar to The School for the 2017-2018 academic year. Please see contact and underwriter information at the bottom of this page.

Why do you need the Tuition Refund Plan?

Your financial obligation to The School is for the full annual tuition as stated in The School's Enrollment and Tuition Contract. The School cannot refund tuition or cancel unpaid obligations if your child is forced to withdraw during the academic year.

If your son or daughter withdraws, the Tuition Refund Plan will pay benefits (subject to the terms of the policy and the amount insured) to The School, which provides substantial assistance in meeting your financial obligation.

Every year, thousands of students must withdraw from private schools. The following are some examples of reasons why:

  • Family Move
  • Change of Objective
  • Injury or Sickness
  • Death of Parent or Student
  • Disciplinary Dismissal
  • Scholastic Difficulties
  • Financial Problems
  • Mental Health Conditions
  • Job Loss

The Plan provides substantial insurance protection at a modest cost.

What the Plan Covers:

Withdrawal or Absence for Medical Reasons

  • The Plan will pay 75% of the unused yearly insured fees, provided the student's injury or sickness forces the student to withdraw from school or medical absence lasts for 31 or more consecutive days. Benefits are paid retroactive to the first day of medical absence.
  • The Plan will pay 50% of the unused yearly insured fees, provided the student's mental health condition, as referenced in DSM V, forces the student to withdraw from school or medical absence lasts for 31 or more consecutive days.

Withdrawal for Other than Medical Reasons

(Examples include: moves, change of objective, financial hardship and voluntary withdrawals.)

  • The Plan will pay 50% of the unused yearly insured fees provided the student has withdrawn from school after attending more than fourteen consecutive calendar days beginning with the student's first class day of attendance in the academic year.

Dismissal from The School

  • The Plan will pay 50% of the unused yearly insured fees provided the student is dismissed from The School after attending more than fourteen consecutive calendar days beginning with the student's first class day of atten dance in the academic year.
