Tuition Refund Insurance is an optional insurance that students may purchase through GradGuard.
This insurance protects the significant financial investment students, and their families, make towards funding their education. It provides a refund of tuition and fees, beyond the refund provided by Middlebury’s leave of absence refund policy, to a student who meets the conditions of the coverage and must take a leave from all classes due to an illness or accidental injury.
GradGuard Tuition Insurance Plan
Middlebury partners with GradGuard to offer students tuition insurance. This optional benefit can protect your investment in higher education in the event of an unforeseen, covered illness, injury, or other covered reason resulting in a withdrawal from school.
Covered Reasons for Withdrawal can Include:
•Covered serious injury or illness such as mononucleosis, COVID-19, or a severe head injury.
•Chronic illnesses such as an auto-immune disorder or diabetes.
•Mental health conditions such as stress, depression, or severe anxiety.
The Tuition Insurance Plan complements the Middlebury refund policy and can provide reimbursement for eligible tuition payments, room and board, and other nonrefundable expenses if you withdraw for a covered illness or injury at any time during the plan period.
