Tuition Refund Plan


Brown University has arranged with A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. to offer the Tuition Refund Plan to our students and parents for use when a student suffers a serious illness or accident and has to leave Brown before the semester is completed. This elective insurance program is designed to minimize the financial portion of losses incurred and coordinates with Brown’s Tuition Leave Refund Policy.  This program provides coverage for tuition, room, and fees (health services and student activity).

The Dewar Tuition Refund Plan is a private insurance program that extends and enhances Brown University's published refund policy. Subscribers are assured a 70% refund throughout the term, even though Brown's refund policy may have expired at the time of withdrawal. This can be especially beneficial when a student is forced to withdraw and then return for a later term.

Policy Statement 

Participation in the Dewar Tuition Refund Plan is entirely optional. Application and payment are accepted through the first day of classes for the fall or spring semester.


Students may purchase the plan upon payment of the fall tuition at or from Dewars at
