This is a private insurance program provided by A.W.G. Dewar, Inc that supplements Northwestern's refund policy by providing a refund of 100% of tuition, fees and applicable room and board charges if, due to an illness or accident, a student takes a leave of absence or withdraws after the beginning of a quarter.
Dewar's Tuition Refund Plan (TRP) extends and works in concert with the published Northwestern University refund policy. Subscribers are provided a 100% refund throughout the quarter even though Northwestern's own refund policy may have expired at the time of withdrawal. The proceeds may be used to pay any educational loan in the event the student withdraws or the money may simply be refunded to the family. Please note, if withdrawal is due to a mental or nervous condition, the TRP pays 60% of tuition, fees and other charges.
Each summer Dewar will mail descriptive brochures and applications to all students. Applications are also available at Dewar's website, www.collegerefund.com. Questions regarding the plan should be directed to A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. at (617) 774-1555.
