Tuition Refund Plan


Brown University has arranged 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 optional 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 up to the purchased policy limits if a student is unable to complete a semester due to a covered medical reason.

The Tuition Refund Plan is a private insurance program that extends and enhances Brown University's published refund policy. The Plan can refund up to 100% of your tuition and fees in the event of a medical withdrawal, 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 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
