Philadelphia University has contracted with A.W.G. Dewar to provide students with tuition insurance. Full-time day students are billed a flat rate per semester for the plan which insures each student’s comprehensive tuition and fee charges (and housing and meal plan for on-campus students). Part time students are billed for tuition insurance on a per-credit basis and the coverage insures the student’s tuition charges only. This coverage will be automatically billed each semester.
A tuition insurance claim may be filed in the event that a student must withdraw from the University due to a serious illness or accident after the published tuition refund deadlines. Plan details are available at www.collegerefund.com/philau/. Students must see the Deans of Students office and file a medical leave of absence. Upon approval, students are encouraged to come see Student Accounts for advise on how to correctly file a Dewar tuition insurance claim. Claim forms for the tuition insurance are available for download, please download both forms - medical & student.
Students may opt to waive this coverage via WebAdvisor. The waiver is good for the academic year and will need to be renewed annually. Waivers for the 2016-2017 academic year, including the 2016 summer semesters, may be completed after April 15th. Students who waived for the 2015-2016 academic year will need to complete the waiver again after April 15th to waive for the 2016-2017 academic year.
Students who opt to waive the tuition insurance coverage will be responsible for billed expenses if they require a medical withdrawal after the published tuition refund dates.
The annual tuition insurance waiver deadlines are as follows:
- Fall semester deadline: Fourth Friday in September (September 23, 2016)
- Spring semester deadline: Second Friday in February (February 10, 2017)
Accelerated, online and summer students with different academic terms must waive within the first two weeks of the start of the term.
