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 semsester.
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/. Claim forms for the tuition insurance are available in the Student Accounts Office.

The waiver is good for the academic year and will need to be renewed annually.Waivers for the 2013-2014 academic year, including the 2013 summer semesters, may be completed after April 15th. Students who waived for the 2012-2013 academic year will need to complete the waiver again after April 15th to waive for the 2013-2014 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.
