Tuition Refund Insurance

Each Year thousands of college students are unable to complete classes for the semester due to unforeseen medical issues such as illness, accidents, concussions, or mental health related issues. Unfortunately, in many cases these families are unable to recoup all of their tuition dollars. At SMU, depending on the timing of the withdrawal, there may be circumstances where you may not be eligible to receive a refund of all your tuition and fees. we understand that these types of situations can be a financial hardship for many families. Therefore, we are pleased to make available the Tuition Refund Insurance Plan.

Tuition Refund Insurance can help refund your tuition, fees, and room/board charges, up to the policy limits, if you are unable to complete the semester due to a covered medical reason such as an illness, accident, or mental health issue. This insurance program complements and enhances our school's refund policy and we believe families will benefit from this added protection.
