Each year thousands of college students are unable to complete classes for the semester due to unforeseen medical issues such as illness, accidents, or mental health related issues. Unfortunately, in many cases these families may also experience a financial loss. At Scripps College depending on the timing of the withdrawal, there may be circumstances where you will not be eligible to receive a refund of all of your tuition and fees. We understand that these types of situations can be a financial hardship for many families; therefore, we are pleased to make GradGuard (1) Tuition Refund Insurance available to our students.
GradGuard Tuition Refund Insurance can help refund your tuition, fees, and room/board charges, up to the policy limits, if you are unable to complete the semester due to a covered medical reason such as an illness, accident, or mental health issue*. This insurance program complements and enhances our school’s published refund policy and we believe families will benefit from this added protection.

*If a withdrawal is due to a mental health issue, a hospitalization stay of at least 24 hours, within 30 days of the date of withdrawal, is required. In some states, this requirement may be modified to a 2-day hospitalization.
