Tuition Protection Plan

What happens when your student’s education is disrupted by an unexpected injury or illness?  Depending on the timing of the withdrawal, you may not be eligible to receive a refund of all of your tuition and fees.

Deadline for enrolling in GradGuard is the last day for 100% reassessment.

The Optional Tuition Protection Insurance Plan helps students and their families overcome the financial losses that may result from events which force students to withdraw from the semester due to a covered medical reason.  Helping families get the most out of your University of Missouri – Columbia experience is always our top priority. That’s why we’ve partnered with GradGuard™ to make the Tuition Insurance Plan available to our families.

This optional coverage strengthens and broadens the scope of our existing refund policy by ensuring reimbursement for tuition, housing and other payments if a student withdraws for any covered medical reason at any time during the semester.
