The College Plan is a form of group insurance originated by Dewar to give families the opportunity to protect their investment in education by refunding semester tuition and on campus room and board lost because of a covered medical withdrawal.
A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. has been offering the Tuition Refund Plan since 1930. Many of our current customer colleges and universities have been offering our coverage for decades.
The Plan provides coverage for tuition, on campus room and board and mandatory fees when a student withdraws for covered medical reasons during a semester.
