Tuition Insurance

Seton Hall University recognizes that education is one of the biggest investments you’ll make in your lifetime. We also recognize that several different unexpected stressors can affect students and their academic performance, including but not limited to:

  • Serious Injury or Illness
  • Chronic Illness
  • Mental Health Conditions

Normally, depending on the timing of the withdrawal, you may not be eligible to receive a refund of your tuition and fees. The Tuition Insurance Plan helps students and families overcome from financial losses that may occur as a result of a withdrawal due to a covered medical reason or death of the student/tuition payer.

Seton Hall University has partnered with GradGuard™ to make the Tuition Insurance Plan available to our families.

What is GradGuard™ ?

GradGuard provides coverage to broaden 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. This includes withdrawal at any point during the semester, so long as it is for a covered medical concern.

The Tuition Insurance Plan not only protects against unexpected medical concerns, but also in the covered death of a tuition payer or student. To get a quote or learn more about selecting this optional tuition insurance, please visit the GradGuard website or call 877-794-6603.

The Tuition Insurance Plan is optional for any accepted student upon enrollment.
