Every year, unexpected events happen that can often disrupt a student's education...and when they do, GradGuard's Tuition Protection Plan can help pay for the potential financial loss experienced by the school and family.
As a result we are pleased to participate in a webinar hosted by the Professional Development Group on September 22, 2016 on the topic of the emerging best practicies by colleges and universities for disclosing and managing tuition refunds. Register for the webinar at this link.Student withdrawals are a growing problem for schools and impacting efforts to promote greater college completion. Data from the 2015 American College Health Association's annual survey on student health suggests that unexpected medical events are likely to be a more common factor behind withdrawals than some campuses recognize.
The discussion will be a good one and highlight efforts by schools that are working to verify that students have been informed of the institution's refund policy.
