Tuition Refund Insurance

The program provides for pro-rate refunding of tuition obligations (net of financial aid) in the event of the student's absence or separation from the school in accordance with the terms of the program. You authorize the school to process and collect any claim payment to which you are entitled under the program and credit it to the school's account, paying any excess to you. You understand that the school will first credit to the student's account any claim payment to which you become entitled. Only after the student's account has been satisfied under the terms of the program will any excess be forwarded to the "primary" signer. Additionally, you agree to pay the school within 30 days after receipt of a final itemized bill whatever balance remains unpaid after any payment under the program has been credited to the school's account.

The premium for participation in the program amounts to 1.8% of the net annual tuition. You understand that a charge for the cost of this program will be included with the school's July tuition billing.
