  • Our renters insurance pays for property losses and helps schools avoid an adversarial collections issue from students who are found liable for unintentional damages the cause.

Revenue: GradGuard's insurance programs pay for losses due to student medical withdrawals and property losses so the school does not have to.

Higher Education Loan Protection: GradGuard has deep knowledge of the student loan industry and aims to work with schools to attract students through a tuition guarantee that will pay the cost of student loans in the case a graduate is under-employed.

The benefit is included within the cost of college, similar to how term life insurance is provided to employees.
