Tuition Refund Insurance

Is your family prepared for the unexpected after classes begin? Winthrop University is pleased to offer GradGuard. This program provides students with a product designed to help protect you during your academic career.  You have worked hard for the opportunity to attend Winthrop. With this investment in your education, it is important that you, and others who may be helping you pay for your education, review Winthrop University's Refund Policy regarding tuition and fees if you are unable to complete the academic term.

We believe it's important to offer an easy, affordable way to protect the investment your family has made in higher education. That's why Winthrop University has negotiated with GradGuard to provide our families with tuition insurance by Allianz Global Assistance featuring special plans and rates not available to the general public. This coverage expands the scope of our refund policy by ensuring reimbursement for tuition, room and board and other fees for covered withdrawals at any time during the semester. Plans also include Student Life Assistance: a 24-hour emergency hotline that offers students and parents even greater peace of mind.

At Winthrop University, we want the best for our students, and Allianz Global Assistance is a world-leader in specialty insurance and assistance- helping over 35 million people protect their tuition payments, travel plans and more each year.
