Philadelphia University has contracted with A.W.G. Dewar to provide students with tuition insurance. Part time students are billed for tuition insurance on a per credit basis and the coverage insures the student’s tuition charges only. The per credit rate for the 2013-2014 academic year is $3.60. 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/. Claim forms for the tuition insurance are available in the Student Accounts Office.
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 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. The annual tuition insurance waiver deadlines are the second Friday in September for the fall semester and the first Friday in February for the spring semester..
