Tuition Refund Plan
What is the Tuition Refund Plan?

Recognizing the substantial investment of an education at Anna Maria College, we have concern for the student who suffers a serious illness or accident and has to leave the College for that reason before the end of the term is completed. In many instances, it means not only the loss of time invested in studies but also the loss of the charges paid for the term. With this is mind, the College has made arrangements to provide a Tuition Refund Plan (TRP), which is designed to minimize the risk of financial loss for students and families if a covered illness or accident occur. A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. offers this program at a cost of $365 for resident students and $265 for commuter students. The charge is billed in the fall semester only and covers the full academic year. For students enrolling in the Spring semester, the program cost is $183 for resident students and $133 for commuter students. You are assured by Dewar of up to an 80% refund throughout the term, even after the College’s refund policy has expired, for withdrawals due to medical and mental health issues.

** The Dewar tuition waiver deadline for students beginning classes in Spring 2019 only is Friday, January 25, 2019.

Undergraduate Students
Since September of 1989, Massachusetts law, G.L. c.15A, § 18, has required every college student participating in at least 75% of the full-time curriculum to participate in a Student Health Insurance Program or in a health benefit plan with comparable coverage. Therefore, all students enrolled in at least 75% of the full-time curriculum are automatically charged the Student Health Insurance Fee. If the student is already enrolled in a comparable health insurance plan, then the student must fill out an online waiver form. The online waiver form can be accessed by selecting "Waiver Form" in the left navigation menu. If you do not submit an online waiver form by the deadline below, you will automatically be enrolled in the College's Student Health Insurance Plan and responsible for the fee.
