Recruitment: GradGuard benefits provide confidence to students and their families that the school is committed to providing relevant protections to what is often the 2nd largest investment in a families life.

Retention: GradGuard tuition and renters insurance products help students overcome unexpected financial losses due to medical events or property losses.

  • Our tuition insurance pays any remaining bills and helps the student afford to return to classes.
  • Our renters insurance pays for property losses and helps schools avoid an adversarial collections issue from students who are found liable for unintentional damages they cause.

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

Reputation: We enable schools to be completely transparent about institutional policies, refund polices and resident liability.

  • Our tuition insurance provides refunds when schools may not.
  • Our renters insurance replace stolen or damaged property when schools may not.
