Undergraduate Students Reminded of Optional Tuition Refund Plan Coverage

Beginning Monday, Nov. 14, undergraduate students will be prompted to either accept or decline optional Tuition Refund Plan (TRP) coverage prior to being allowed to register for spring 2017 classes.

The TRP helps protect undergraduate students from financial loss in the event of an accident or serious illness resulting in a complete medical withdrawal from all classes after the beginning of the term. While St. Thomas does offer a generous refund schedule, it is most effective when withdrawal occurs early in the term. Refunds are prorated and only occur during the first six weeks of fall or spring semester.

Subscribers to the TRP coverage are provided an 80 percent refund throughout the term even after the university’s own refund schedule has expired at the time of a medical withdrawal. Students requesting withdrawals and refunds outside of the university’s refund schedule for health-related reasons will be required to have purchased the TRP.

St. Thomas does not endorse this or any other private tuition insurance program, but we invite you to give serious consideration to enrolling in this program. The cost of coverage for the spring 2017 semester is $110.
