84% of schools do not provide 100% refunds, but GradGuard's tuition insurance can.

Just a year ago, I was pleased to announce that schools and families now have access to world-class service and valuable protections offered exclusively through GradGuard's Tuition Protection Plan from Allianz Global Assistance. 

Indeed, our announcement came just in time.  In a 2017 survey of university bursars and student financial service leaders, 84% of schools surveyed do not provide 100% refunds to students who withdraw from college for medical reasons.

Thanks to GradGuard's collaboration with Allianz Global Assistance - it is now easier than ever before for college students and their families to receive valuable protection for the investment they make in a higher education.

If your school does not provide 100% refunds, now is the time for you to begin to offer tuition insurance.  If consumers can easily protect a $300 vacation with travel insurance, they should also have a convenient way for families to protect their $30,000 investment in college.

To learn more why this is a timely discussion, please download the presentation I shared at the annual meeting of NACUBO Student Financial Services conference.
